As we move towards a return to normality and further relaxing of restrictions, Sport NI plans to be in the position to return to face-to-face learning therefore from the 1st September 2021, Sport NI will no longer be organising and delivering Safeguarding workshops directly but will return to facilitating workshop bookings from Governing Bodies and Local Authorities as was the delivery model pre-pandemic.
If you wish to access a Safeguarding Children and Young People workshop or a Designated Safeguarding Children’s Officer Workshop, you should contact you should contact your Governing Body Development Officer or Local Authority Sports Development Officer to check when the next workshop is taking place within your area or sport.
Both workshops will be available in the virtual online and face-to-face formats but it will be down to the organiser as to how they wish to deliver training based on their clubs and volunteers needs and own policies.
If you are unsure of who to contact within your Governing Body or Local Authority, you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org providing us with your sport and area and we will be able to signpost you who to contact. Alternatively you can contact Sport NI on 07814075365 (between the hours of 9am – 5pm Monday to Friday).
