Welfare

​​

Bristol City Cerebral Palsy FC has appointed two Child Welfare Officers (CWO) in line with The Football
Association’s role profile and required completion of the Safeguarding Children Workshop.

Our CWO’s are the first point of contact for all club members and parents or guardians regarding
concerns for the welfare of any child or young person. They will liaise directly with the Somerset FA’s
Child Protection Officer (CPO) and will be familiar with the procedures for referring any concerns.
They will also play a proactive role in increasing an awareness of poor practice and abuse amongst
club members.
The CWO’s are:
Alistair Fenton and Alison Mckay
