Welfare Officer

Sue Roome

Tel 01995 603885
Address 1 St Helens Close, Churchtown, Garstang, Preston, PR3 0HY
Email Sue@mroome.myzen.co.uk

Sue’s role is to help protect young people and vulnerable adults within the club.

She is the person to contact if anyone has any concern that a club member may be being bullied or abused. The idea is that if all concerns, however small, are reported to one person, then a real problem should be picked up quicker.

British Orienteering has produced a card for young orienteers to record their Club Welfare Officer’s details. It, also, contains some basic information about how to look after yourself, and when to be concerned. If you would like one, please contact Sue, or download one here.

More information can be found on the
SROC website under “About SROC/SROC Policies/Protection Policy
or at
British Orienteering Website (www.britishorienteering.org.uk) under “O-Safe – Child Welfare Policy and Procedures at a club level”.

Help is also available at the free help lines: Childline 0800 1111; NSPCC 0808 800 5000
