Yorkshire Fencing Welfare Officers
South Yorkshire Area - Stuart Bolton
North Yorkshire Area - TBC
It is recommended by British Fencing that all regional fencing clubs should delegate a person to be a Welfare representative as part of their club structure. Everyone in a club should feel safe and welcome. Yorkshire fencing has a regional Welfare Officer, Stuart Bolton, who is available to offer support and guidance to all Yorkshire region clubs.
It is also recommended that all Welfare representatives take Safeguarding training and be DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) checked. Information can be found by visiting the BFA website at www.britishfencing.com/governance/wefare/welfare_documents_and_Resources/ .
If your club already has a Welfare representative could you forward their details to Stuart Bolton whose email and contact details are on our website, mobile 07511 236180
