Important information regarding Safeguarding


Nov 2016

The RFU would like to remind everyone involved in the game of the importance of providing a safe and positive environment for our young players.

The RFU’s Safeguarding Policy, Toolkit and RFU Regulation 21 sets out requirements and aims to assist clubs in ensuring that the welfare of children remains of paramount importance. The RFU also offer clubs an effective safeguarding training programme for all members of the game. It is strongly recommended that anyone involved in rugby (specifically those within the under the age 18 game) attend. Further information on training can be found on the England Rugby website.

If you have questions or concerns, you should contact the LRU safeguarding team in the first instance who will be happy to advise.
