Under Child Protection laws and RFU policy, a "child" is anyone under the age of 18 engaged in any rugby union activity.

The Key Principles of the RFU Safeguarding Policy are that:

  • The welfare of the child is, and must always be, paramount to any other considerations
  • All participants regardless of age, gender, ability or disability, race, faith, size, language or sexual identity have the right to protection from abuse or harm and should be able to enjoy their rugby in a positive, safe and enjoyable environment
  • All allegations or suspicions of abuse, neglect, harm, discrimination and poor practice will be taken seriously and responded to swiftly, fairly and appropriately
  • Everyone involved in the sport will work in partnership to promote the welfare, health and development of children

Hampshire RFU has appointed a Safeguarding Manager (CBSM) to co-ordinate their network of Club Safeguarding Officers (CSO).

The CB Safeguarding Manager is
