Safeguarding Young People

Here at Luctonians RFC we take the welfare of young people very seriously.

To this end we are pleased to make available here a range of guides and resources that will ensure that all of our members, regardless of their age and status can enjoy their sport in safety and be part of a community based on respect for each other and the law.

Children are the lifeblood of the game and it is crucial that they are cared for in the correct manner. Any player under the age of 18 is classed as a child and should be respected as such.

As a parent you will no doubt want your child to enjoy their involvement in rugby union in a safe, friendly environment where there are opportunities to learn and develop rugby skills while also having fun.

In order to provide young people with the best possible experiences and opportunities in the sport of rugby union, it is imperative that everyone operates within an accepted ethical framework and demonstrates exemplary behaviour. This not only ensures the game makes a positive contribution to the development of young people, safeguards them and promotes their welfare but also protects all personnel from allegations of abuse or poor practice.

Luctonians RFC operates strictly within all the RFU Rules and Guidelines.Clearly, during the present pandemic, we are also applying further safeguarding measures.
