Child Protection Policy

Club Welfare Officers

Job King, Welfare Officer


UKA takes its responsibilities towards the welfare of young people in Athletics very seriously and requires everyone in athletics who has significant contact with children to have an Enhanced Disclosure Barring Service Check.

This means that anyone having a role in the club (coaching, officiating, managing, etc) is required to undergo a DBS check. (The DBS replaced the previous CRB checks as of September 2012).

Further details are available at the UK Athletics website.
