Safeguarding & Club Welfare

Volleyball England is committed to creating and maintaining a safe and positive environment for all young people to participate in volleyball. We all have a responsibility to safeguard the welfare of young people and protect them from poor practice, abuse and bullying.

Young people are the future of our sport, they participate in volleyball in various ways, from playing to volunteering and should be able to do so in a safe and happy environment.

Safeguarding means promoting the safety and welfare of young people. Safeguarding is a term used to incorporate good practice and is wider than “Child Protection”.  Child protection is still an essential element of this policy and is about acting on concerns about a young person or individual.  

No matter what your role is within your club you have a part to play in safeguarding.  Click on your role below to identfiy training and advice:
