Talk to your Club Welfare Officer
It can sometimes be difficult to speak to an adult about how you are
You might think that an adult will not understand – THEY WILL ISTEN
You may think that they will not believe you – THEY WILL BELIEVE YOU
You may be scared that they will tell other people – THEY WILL ONLY TELL SOMEONE WHO CAN HELP
You might think they have not got time to talk to you – THEY WILL ALWAYS MAKE TIME TO TALK

You only have to share information that you want to share
Telling someone will begin to help you
