London GAA two Safeguarding Course

London GAA are organising two Safeguarding Courses for all of our youth coaches/mentors/administrators involved with London GAA .

There will be a Safeguarding Course on Friday, January 13th which will run from 7.00 p.m. - 10.00 p.m. in St.Paul's Academy, Abbeywood (SE2 9PX). There will also be a Safeguarding Course on Saturday, January 14th which will run from 10.00 a.m. - 1.00 p.m. in TVG Grounds in Greenford. The Safeguarding Courses limited to 25 people and in the interest of fairness, we will only accept 5 nominations from each Club.

 Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis so please contact Lloyd Colfer Community Development Administrator, London G.A.A. on  078 72600073 
ASAP if you are interested in attending.

Finally, under the new guidelines from the Provincial Council of Britain GAA, anyone involved with teams that have players under the age of 18 must be DBS certified, complete a Coaching Course and also, a Safeguarding Course so it is imperative that we get as many people as possible to attend these Courses over the coming weeks and months before the season starts as there will be a zero tolerance policy on this from the London County Board and the Provincial Council going forward.  We will look forward to seeing you all over the course of the season.
