New RFU Safeguarding Policy & Guidance
The RFU has long been at the forefront in ensuring that the rugby environment is a safe one for the young and the vulnerable. The Union’s new and updated Safeguarding Policy and guidance document is now available for all levels of rugby union in England. Safeguarding Young People and Vulnerable Adults within Rugby Union Policy & Guidance, replaces the previous “Welfare of Young People in Rugby Union Guidance” document with immediate effect.
Please ensure that any future safeguarding related processes are carried out in accordance with this new document.
Each County has a Separate County Safeguarding Manager. [ CSM]
All issues in your Club relating to Safeguarding matters should be reported to your CSM.
Your CSM can advise about courses that you should be holding at your Club for your Mini/Junior/Youth staff.
Your Club Safeguarding Officer should be registered by your club on the RFU Rugby First web site which gives you access to all the RFU documents and advice for your role.
Procedures to follow where an incident takes place must be followed - this guidance is also on Rugby First.
