Time to Listen is a three hour workshop for Club Welfare Officers (CWO). CWOs must have attended a Safeguarding & Protecting Children workshop previously and will need to bring their own reporting procedures to the workshop. Please ensure that your National Governing Body accepts the multi-sport version of this Time to Listen course before booking. The workshop will:
