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.
ChildLine W: www.childline.org.uk T: 0800 11 11
ChildLine is for children only and is a free, private and confidential service, operating from 9am – midnight, where you can talk about anything.
If you’re worried about a young person, you can contact NSPCC Helpline: 0808 800 5000 (8am-10pm Mon-Fri/9am-6pm weekends) or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
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.
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.
