Child & Player Welfare

The RFL Safeguarding team is here to support all clubs at all levels of the game

Everyone in Rugby League wants children to start, stay and succeed in our sport. And for players of all ages to enjoy playing.

Everyone in Rugby League is responsible for the welfare and safety of the children and young people who take part.

The RFL is committed to ensuring the correct policies are adhered to within the game.

The RFL Safeguarding and Protecting Children Policy contains the principles which must be adhered to by all clubs in the game to ensure that young people in the game can be healthy and happy, and able to enjoy their sport and to develop as players and individuals.

The RFL Safeguarding team is here to support all clubs to ensure that best practice is followed at all times.

If you have specific queries or wish to discuss a concern, please contact the team at any time.
