Sports clubs learning to safeguard children

The council is responding to feedback from local sports clubs by staging a safeguarding children workshop later this month.

The first workshop organised by Derbyshire Dales District Council’s Clubs First project since its launch in October last year will be held on Monday, January 27.

The event will be held at Matlock Town Football Club on Monday 27 January from 6pm.

The district council’s club development coordinator, Alan McGill said: “Twenty local clubs have now signed up to this new programme and the Sports Coach UK workshop on safeguarding and protecting children is a direct response to what they told us was needed.”
