Welfare

Safeguarding all of our members, leaders, coaches and volunteers is the top priority for BRAT. We have two dedicated Welfare Officers: Rachel Hill and Christopher Davy. Rachel is an experienced primary school teacher, with the role of Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead at her school, so she has a wealth of experience on which to draw in this role. Christopher is a secondary school teacher and also a Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead at his school. Rachel and Christopher can be contacted on: welfare@bratclub.co.uk.

As part of our commitment to safeguarding, we expect all members to abide by our BRAT Club Code of Conduct.

The BRAT Club has adopted the policies and procedures from the relevant National Governing Bodies. Links to the relevants sections on their websites can be found here:
