Welfare Officer

All sports have a responsibility to ensure they provide a safe and fun environment for children and young people.

Through the Every Child Matters: Change for Children programme, the government makes it very clear that sport has to put safeguards in place. Football, along with other sports such as cricket, rugby and swimming - to name but a few - believe the best way to do this is to appoint a Welfare Officer.

Ruishton FC has appointed Matthew Jackson as the Club Welfare Officer.  If you have any concerns regarding  your childs welfare (or the welfare of another child within the club) then please contact Matthew.
