The Thurlow Nunn League endorses the work of The Offside Trust and has encouraged our clubs to engage with that organisation.
The Offside Trust is an independent body that was established to work alongside clubs, organisations and other charitable bodies to further enhance safeguarding at all levels of sport.
Its aims are to :
Ø raise awareness of the importance of safeguarding across all sports at all levels,
Ø provide survivors with advice, guidance and resources to aid the healing journey, and
Ø campaign for legal and regulatory changes to improve safeguarding in sport.
The Offside Trust is seeking to build partnerships with clubs and charities to make the greatest difference where it is needed most.
More information can be found at the website : http://www.offsidetrust.com/
A number of our clubs are already support The Offside Trust and hopefully many more will do so.
The local ambassador for The Offside Trust is Alan Arber. It is likely that Alan will be in contact with Clubs over the coming season, but if you wish to be more proactive, email Alan on : firstname.lastname@example.org
