For peace of mind Bradford City WFC Junior section is overseen by Charlotte Stuart who is this seasons ‘Club Development Officer’ and has been at the club for over 10 years starting as a junior player herself and through her hard work and determination now holds down her place in the senior 1st XI. Charlotte is also a committee member and works alongside the clubs ‘Welfare Officer’ Steve Winterburn. Steve has been at the club for 8 years and has been involved with Junior football coaching and Child Welfare issues since 1992. His role is to be available for all involved at the club and to ensure that a safe and friendly environment is fixed in place. Steve has experience with handling many Child Welfare Issues and is happy to discuss anything at anytime with anyone regarding any Child Welfare issues. He has attended many CWO(child welfare officer) workshops known as WOW(welfare officer workshops)which are run by the County FA and he along with all other CWO’s are updated on a regular basis from the County on any current issues that need attention at clubs in and around the area. It is also his responsibility to ensure that all Managers and coaches involved with the clubs u18’s are CRB (criminal record bureau) checked.
All coaches working directly with our under 18’s are CRB checked and those working alongside the coaches are too or are in the process off. As well as all the coaches being CRB checked they are also qualified football coaches which means they have also taken part in courses referring to 'safe guarding children'. Therefore any minor concerns can be taken up with the coaches themselves who have been briefed on procedures as to whether or not to deal with them direct or contact the clubs CWO.
The CWO is also there for the wellbeing of the coaches as well as the juniors and they have been instructed of the do’s and don’ts when it comes to working alongside the juniors at training and match days. As much as our coaches are very friendly and helpful, they are always there to listen but they are not child minders.
If any juniors, parents, coaches or any other members of BCWFC feel they need to discuss anything at all concerning the welfare of others at the club please find contact details below.
