Safeguarding

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.

  • 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.

  • Welfare Officer Guidance

    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.

  • Training & Courses

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