Wales Netball is committed to ensuring everyone who takes part in our sport across Wales can participate in a safe, friendly, and enjoyable environment; whether you are playing netball, umpiring, volunteering, or cheering from the side-lines, we want everyone participating in netball to feel confidently safe and enjoy the game we know and love. We are dedicated to complying with the National Standard for Safeguarding and Protecting Children in Sport and want to ensure that all children, young people, and adults have positive experiences in netball, in which they feel protected from any form of abuse, bullying and exploitation.
We have developed a Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy that provides a range of guidance and resources to support our Leagues, Clubs, members, and parents or carers, to help safeguard from any risk of harm to netball participants across Wales. The guidance is available to all participating in netball in Wales, so whether you’re a netballer, coach, parent, or carer, we hope you find the information you need in this section. There is a lot of information and guidance supporting safeguarding in our sport, and sometimes this can seem overwhelming. If you are not able to find the guidance specific to you, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
Our Clubs and Leagues adopt our Safeguarding policies and are required to have a Safeguarding Officer to support the members participating in their respective Clubs and Leagues. The Club Safeguarding Officer (CSO) is the main point of contact for safeguarding guidance and concern reporting, we encourage members and parents/carers to find out who their CSO is directly with their Club.
