Safeguarding & Welfare

Volleyball England believes that all participants, staff and volunteers should feel safe while participating in volleyball. We are committed to creating and maintaining a positive environment where all concerns will be listened to, acted on appropriately and all participants treated with respect. 

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.
