In the spirit of continuous improvement and a commitment to the well-being of our judo community, we would like to remind all judo clubs of the monthly virtual drop-in sessions facilitated by the British Judo Inclusion, Safeguarding & Welfare Support Team. These sessions serve as a vital platform for clubs to collectively address concerns, review policies, and collaboratively work towards establishing a safe and inclusive culture and will be held on the second Tuesday of every month.
- Open Dialogue on Concerns:
- These sessions provide a safe space for clubs to voice concerns or queries they may have regarding welfare, safeguarding, or any related matters.
- The British Judo Inclusion, Safeguarding & Welfare Support Team is here to listen, offer guidance, and provide resources to address your specific needs.
- Policy Review and Evaluation:
- Stay up-to-date on the latest best practices and judo-specific policies.
- The team will guide clubs in the review and evaluation of their existing policies to ensure they align with industry standards and foster a secure environment for all members.
Establishing a Safe and Inclusive Culture:
- Learn and discuss strategies for creating a welcoming and inclusive culture within your judo club.
- Explore ways to make your club accessible and enjoyable for participants of all backgrounds and abilities.
The next session will be held on Tuesday 12th December.

Club Welfare Officer Drop In Clinic
These sessions are ran on the second Tuesday of every month virtually.
Clubs should also be reminded that from 1st April 2024 it will be mandatory for all clubs with members under the age of 18 years to have a Club Welfare Officer (CWO). This extension, approved by the British Judo Board, will allow clubs more time to recruit a dedicated CWO.
Thank you for your commitment to the welfare of our clubs and members and we look forward to working together to create a safe and inclusive environment for all.
