Safeguarding Adults

Safeguarding Adults in Sport is a new project run by the Ann Craft Trust (ACT), funded by Sport England, to help National Governing Bodies, Active Partnerships, regional partners and sports clubs to develop best practice in safeguarding adults at risk.

Rounders England, with support from ACT, have created their new Safeguarding Adults policy and procedures. The policy applies to all adults, 18 years or older, involved in rounders.

We hope that the policy will assist you as we all work towards a safer environment for the future of our sport.
