Cumbria Safeguarding Children Partnership and the NSPCC have launched a new campaign in Cumbria called ‘It’s Not OK’
The campaign aims to raise awareness of child exploitation – what the signs are, what the impact is and who to contact if you are worried about a child.
As part of this campaign, Cumberland FA are supporting the CSCP and NSPCC who are offering a webinar to Club Welfare Officers, Club Secretaries, Coaches and other committee members in November.
The webinar is one hour long and will cover the different types and models of exploitation, the signs and impact, signposting and give more information on the campaign in Cumbria.
Mel Sandwith, Designated Safeguarding Officer for Cumberland FA said: "We believe that we all have a role to play in keeping children and young people safe and through the network of football clubs across the county, the reach to support these vulnerable children and young people is potentially huge."
There are two potential dates for the FREE online webinar:
Wednesday 11 November starting at 7pm
or Friday 13 November starting at 7pm
These webinars are targetted at Cumberland FA Club Welfare Officers, Club Secretaries, Coaches and other Committee Members.
Please complete the below expression of interest form with your preference if you would like to 'attend' online no later than 6pm on Monday 26 October 2020.
Following the deadline, the date for the webinar will be confirmed.
