SJFA would like to welcome Arif Govani as the new Welfare Officer.
Arif has been part of the coaching set up since late 2019 and holds a FA Level 1 badge.
The three-hour interactive workshop that Arif attended helps learners to identify and build on best practice in football, recognise signs of abuse and identify behaviour that causes concern, identify the actions to take if concerned about a child and develop an action plan for change.
In addition to the above, Arif’s strategic focus for next season will be to work with the coaches to ensure our training sessions are inclusive to all and that we have the right structure and platform to support this initiative.
I look forward to working with Arif in the coming weeks and months.
