Safeguarding & Club Welfare - Important info for all volleyball clubs

LPV Player

Volleyball England is committed to creating and maintaining a safe and positive environment for all young people to participate in volleyball. We all have a responsibility to safeguard the welfare of young people and protect them from poor practice, abuse and bullying.

Young people are the future of our sport, they participate in volleyball in various ways, from playing to volunteering and should be able to do so in a safe and happy environment.

Safeguarding means promoting the safety and welfare of young people. Safeguarding is a term used to incorporate good practice and is wider than “Child Protection”.  Child protection is still an essential element of this policy and is about acting on concerns about a young person or individual. 


The CPSU and NSPCC now require community sports clubs to have the following in place in regards to their provision for  the safeguarding of children and venerable adults:

 Adult-Only Clubs

  • The safeguarding and welfare role will be called the Club Welfare Officer. All literature and documentation will be amended to reflect this.
  • The Club Welfare Officer has to complete the Sports Coach UK Safeguarding and Protecting Children Workshop - this can be done either face to face or online. 
  • Other safeguarding courses from other sports or professional capacities are acceptable as long as it was a face to face course.
  • Club Welfare Officers are be required to upload their course details onto their online profile for authentication.

 Clubs with Junior members: 

  • The safeguarding and welfare role will be called the Club Welfare Officer. All literature and documentation will be amended to reflect this.
  • The Club Welfare Officer has to complete a face to face Safeguarding and Protecting Children Workshop or upload a previous details of a similar face to face workshop.
  • The Club Welfare Officer have to complete a Time to Listen Course (volleyball specific or a multisport course) Courses are detailed below.

Volleyball England - Changes to welfare officer requirements

You may have already seen this, however we asked for clarification on certain aspects. We were told the following..

All Volleyball England affiliated clubs MUST have in place a welfare officer before the start of the 2016/17 season, also that welfare officer but have attended the the Sport Coach UK Safeguarding and Protecting Children Course.

This is regardless of whether your club caters for Under 18's or not, except Colleges and Universities that already have welfare provision in place.

"if clubs cater for under 18’s the Time to Listen Workshop detailed in the email below must also be attended by the welfare officer."

Survey Request from Volleyball England



On 20th April 2015, we launched a full review of all Volleyball Competitions and Major Events to ensure that we are actively working towards the creation of 'an integrated top to bottom event structure which contains a portfolio of high quality domestic and international events' as outlined within ‘Strategy 2024’.
The views of Volleyball England members are critical to the success of this review. This stakeholder survey is part of a wide ranging consultation process to capture the views of clubs, regional associations, Volleyball England commissions and the wider membership.
We are seeking your inputs to improve existing competitions and to enable us to consider any new competitions or competition structures that may be required to support the development of Volleyball.
There are 4 separate surveys. Each survey has a specific focus – please complete those that are most relevant to you, or your club or association.
Your help in completing this survey is greatly appreciated as it will help ensure that we are able to improve existing competitions and develop new competition concepts/structures to increase participation, enhance performance and grow the sport.
The survey opens on 21st September and will close at 12 noon on 9th October.]
Kind regards,
Rob Cook
International Events and Competitions Director
