Hassocks Junior FC seeks to build a safe, enjoyable and inclusive environment for all children and young people.
All our Coaches are required to achieve a FA Level 1 coaching course, which includes training on Child Welfare.
The Club also has an appointed Child Welfare Officers (CWO) to ensure we are compliant, and provide players, parents and managers with a point of contact to raise any issues about child welfare in the club.
Our Child Welfare Officers are Janet Woodhouse and Emma Steele – available on [email protected]
The CWO’s, working with the Clubs Committee, also help put together Policy and best practice for the club to follow – see below for the links;
