Welfare Officer Register

The Club Welfare Officer register below will be updated regularly . If we are missing up to date information about the welfare courses you have attended or your British Fencing membership has expired – please inform nickie.bailey@britishfencing.com

It is now possible to upload certificates directly into your British Fencing membership account via the Sport:80 platform.

Please note that in order to incorporate the different welfare certifications used by all the Home Countries  BF have updated the classification to generic titles, as demonstrated below.

These can be uploaded via the “Safeguarding Qualification”  option;

  • En Gaurde Ready & Safe Hands 1 = Club Welfare 1
  • Time to Listen & Safe Hands 2 = Club Welfare 2
  • Safeguarding and Protecting Children In Sport & Child Well-being and Protection in Sport = Safeguarding & Protecting Children in Sport

Please remember it is mandatory to be a member of British Fencing (supporter level is sufficient) to act in the role of  Club Welfare Register – if you are not a member click here.

Once you have successfully uploaded your certificate(s) please email headoffice@britishfencing.com and ask for the relevant workforce registers to be updated.



BF have created a traffic light system to highlight the Club Welfare Officer compliance on the register;

  • Green – fully compliant
  • Amber – missing courses and/or evidence of your criminal records check (DBS/PVG/ AccessNI)
  • Red – missing all courses
  • School Designated Safeguarding Leads are also easily identifiable
