Fitmums and Friends aims to create an environment where everyone feels safe and secure to enable them to achieve their potential – to run, cycle, walk, lead, coach, officiate or to support those who do.

Welfare covers a range of issues such as safeguarding and protecting children, anti-bullying, equity, poor practice in coaching and disciplinary and grievances matters. It encompasses policies and procedures to set out minimum standards of expectations, such as codes of conduct, procedures to follow for dealing with child protection concerns, other welfare issues or complaints, and to ensure that Fitmums & Friends meet their statutory responsibilities to safeguard and protect children and the wider membership.

Every Local Fitmums and Friends Club has a Welfare Officer whom you should contact in the event of any welfare concerns.

My Welfare role is Welfare Officer on a Tuesday Morning for Beverley Fitmums and Friends. I volunteered for the role of welfare officer as I have been a member of Beverley Fitmums and Friends for 5 years and I feel that many of the members would feel easy to approach me if they have any issues they wanted to discuss.

I feel the Welfare role is important so that members attending the club feel safe  and if they feel they need to discuss any issue they know that we are here for them as we are that point of contact.

Please get in touch if you want to chat or have any questions.

My Welfare role is the Welfare Officer on a Thursday evening for Beverley Fitmums and Friends.

My role is to make sure the club provide and maintain a safe and inclusive environment for all members.

Welfare is important to contribute to good practice within the club and to ensure the safety and enjoyment of members, coaches, and volunteers.

I feel the welfare role is very important. Our primary focus, along with making sure the club is operating in a safe and secure environment, is to make sure our members feel safe and to provide a contact point for members to discuss any concerns and issues. If anyone needs a chat, they can do this by contacting any of the welfare leaders.

If anyone does have any questions or would like a chat, please do get in touch.
