All British Fencing Affiliated Clubs offering fencing sessions to children (U18s) and adults at risk must have an identified Club Welfare Officer in place.
(Please note that in Scotland this is called a Child Protection and Wellbeing Officer.)
The contact details of the Club Welfare Officer must be provided to British Fencing through the BF online platform https://bf.sport80.com/login.
Contact details should also be displayed clearly within the club environment at every session.

In these circumstances it is acceptable for the club to operate within that welfare framework. The Lead Safeguarding Officer contact details shoild be provided to BF as part of any club affiliation.
