Welcome to the Safeguarding section of our website

Rounders England is the National Governing Body for the sport of Rounders in England. As part of our commitment to ensuring that young people and adults at risk are able to enjoy the sport of Rounders, we have developed our policy and guidance on Safeguarding and Protecting Young People in Rounders and our Safeguarding Policy and Procedures for adults.

Rounders England Achieve Advanced Standard

Rounders England were successful in achieving the National Advanced Standard of the Child Protection in Sport Unit (CPSU) safeguarding standards. This is an important piece of work which gives a clear message that Rounders is committed to Safeguarding and that we will continue to embed good practice across the sport.

Rounders England is committed to ensuring that everyone who participates in Rounders has a safe and positive experience. Following the achievement of the National Advanced Standard, Rounders England carries out an annual comprehensive self-assessment. This is in collaboration with the CPSU and have achieved a ‘green’ RAG rating every year since.

In September 2017 Rounders England worked with the Ann Craft Trust (ACT) to develop our Safeguarding Adults in Sport policy.

  • Safeguarding children

    We seek to help protect and promote the welfare of all young people in Rounders by having in place clear policies and guidance for safeguarding children.

  • Safeguarding Adults

    With support from the Ann Craft Trust (ACT), we have created a Safeguarding Adults policy and procedure. The policy applies to all adults, 18 years or older, involved in Rounders.

  • Club Welfare Officer

    Club Welfare Officers play a key role. By designating someone to this role, we have a first point of contact for safeguarding concerns.

  • Safeguarding resources

    We have provided lots of useful downloadable resources to support teams and leagues with regards to Safeguarding.

  • Courses

    The NSPCC Child Protection in Sport Unit (CPSU) and UK Coaching have developed courses that are available to our Club Welfare Officers and Workforce.
