DBS for Clubs

Club Welfare Officers [CWOs] play a key role in the implementation of safeguarding children in Aikido. Their presence in clubs means they are ideally placed to support the implementation of the new DBS requirements. All clubs offering training sessions for under 18s should have a CWO in post. However we appreciate that some organisations are working towards this as part of their development plans. If your club does not have a CWO then this section should be considered applicable to the role of Association Child Protection  Officer [ACPO]. ACTION PLAN
