Weightlifting Ireland hosted two Sport Ireland Safeguarding 1 Basic Awareness Workshop to our coaches, members and club children officers over the weekend.

These 3 hour workshops were delivered on Friday and Saturday (12th and 13th of February) by our tutors Brian O Neill and Pauline Cunningham.

23 coaches, volunteers, referees and club children officers completed Sport Ireland basic awareness workshop which educates participants on the implementation of best practice in protecting the welfare of children and vulnerable adults involved in Sport. 

The Safeguarding 1 Basic Awareness Workshop is compulsory for all coaches, referees, volunteers, club children officers, designated liaison persons and any Weightlifting Ireland members who are working with or around children and youths.‼️

Weightlifting Ireland will be organising more Safeguarding 1 workshops for our members in the coming weeks to ensure all our members meet the best practice in line with Sport Ireland.
