Welfare Officer :  Sarah Nafisi (Broad) Mob: 07554112629 email:

My name is Sarah Nafisi and I have recently been appointed to the team of Club Welfare Officer’s.

As a family we have been members of Cheshire Gymnastics since 2017 when my daughter began training with the club. To date my role within the club has been as an Acrobatics Judge and a Parent Volunteer, I am an advocate for the importance of exercise in any form for children’s wellbeing and I pride myself on my work ethic, responsibility, and integrity.
Outside of gymnastics I am a mum of three and the branch secretary for the Cheshire West and Chester Branch of the National Autistic society.
As a new Welfare Officer my role is to support a positive child centred environment within gymnastics. To assist the club in safeguarding children and to act as a point of contact for anyone who has any concerns.
Safeguarding the gymnasts is everyone’s responsibility, through open communication and transparency we can continue to create a positive environment where all gymnasts can thrive.
Safeguarding all our members is everyone’s responsibility, which we all work hard to do.
