Duty to Care Toolkit - 5 pillars.jpg

Access UK Coaching’s new Duty to Care Toolkit and earn the free nationally recognised Duty to Care Digital Badge.

As a coach, you have a duty to care for every individual you support and interact with, on and off the field of play. This should be the golden thread that runs through every aspect of your coaching, as you strive to meet people’s physical, social, emotional and psychological needs.

UK Coaching has established a unique Duty to Care approach to galvanise the coaching sector to fulfil their obligations around the Duty to Care ethos, the principles of which underpin great coaching.

With recent months having put an immense strain on people’s physical and mental well-being, the Toolkit has been designed to support you to support the people you coach, whilst simultaneously giving you the knowledge and skills to better look after your own health and well-being.

The Toolkit will give you the confidence to embrace and adjust to the changed coaching landscape because of the coronavirus pandemic.
