Colchester and District Fencing Club
The club recognises that the welfare of all its members is essential and that we all have a duty of care while they are in our charge. We therefore aim to provide a safe and caring environment whilst they attend the club or activities in which the club is involved. 

The club and its members will adopt, and up hold the procedures and guidelines as issued by the British Fencing Association (BFA) to which the club and members must be affiliated. Details can be found on the BFA website. 

Our Welfare Officer for both the Weekday and Saturday Clubs  is –

Our coaches have also undergone safeguarding training.

A copy of the Club’s policies, documentation and procedures are also submitted to Colchester Borough Council who run our sports centre.

This information and contact details can be found on the club’s noticeboard.
