The welfare and well-being of all participants whatever their race, religion, sex, class, sexual orientation, age, disability or special need is a key concern of Volleyball England. The information contained in this section is designed to minimise risks and maximise enjoyment and is relevant to all those taking part but particularly those groups who are most vulnerable.
Each week more than 8 million children in the UK take part in sport. They do so in a range of situations, from local groups to national competitions. But while most enjoy themselves in safety, a small number are at risk of abuse from individuals who choose sports work to gain access to children.
The majority of children who take part in sport do so in a safe and helpful atmosphere, with genuine support from coaches, volunteers and other club staff. But for the small minority of children, who are abused during sporting activities, the picture is very different.
If you have any specific queries or wish to discuss a concern, please contact Amy Dennis, Young People Manager via email@example.com or by phone on 01509 227722
