Wesport run numerous Safeguarding and Protecting Children workshops throughout the year and is by far our most popular course.

This course is accredited by UK Coaching (used to be called Sport Coach UK), the NSPCC and the Child Protection in Sport Unit and will raise your awareness of the telltale signs of abuse, and give you the tools and confidence you need to deal with any issues sensitively, appropriately and effectively should the need ever arise.
