Child Safeguarding Resources
Helping everyone understand their rights and responsibilities when it comes to keeping children and young people safe in rugby.

As part of our commitment to creating safer environments for children and young people to enjoy rugby, there are a number of guidance and information resources for children and young people, parents, volunteers, staff and clubs. These resources will help everyone involved in the game to understand what they can do in their role to help create a safe and enjoyable environment for children and young people.
