Rene Tonon - Welfare Officer
My name is Rene Tonon, I am the AWE Judo Club Welfare Officer.
I practice Judo as a hobby and have two children, Imogen and Logan, also practicing Judo at the club
The Club Welfare Officer is the first point of contact regarding concerns about children’s welfare, poor practice or child abuse.
The Club Welfare Officer assists the club to fulfil its responsibilities to safeguard children and young people and assists the club to implement its child protection plan.
As the Club Welfare Officer I have completed the training required by the BJA for this role I am DBS checked, and trained in First Aid.
The Club Welfare Officer is responsible for following the British Judo Association’s policy and procedures especially in relation to safeguarding and in particular the reporting procedures.
If you have a concern, or would like to discuss the wellbeing of your child at the club, or inform us of anything regarding your child that would help the coaches to better interact and look after your child, please feel free to contact me, either by phone or email, or in person at our Judo sessions on Mondays and Wednesdays.
Also, if you feel that we have not addressed an incident to your satisfaction, you can bring the matter to the attention of the national BJA safeguarding manager using this form: https://www.britishjudo.org.uk/the-british-judo-association/safeguarding-new/reporting-a-safeguarding-concern/.
