As part of this commitment Volleyball England has developed a Safeguarding & Protecting Young People Policy and Good Practice Guidance. It has been designed to both inform and guide those within our sport on all aspects of safeguarding and should be adopted by all members of the volleyball community. Volleyball England believes that all members of the volleyball community have responsibilities to help protect young people and as such has developed this Safeguarding and Protecting Young People policy to help ensure that this happens.The guidance is set out in four sections to make it as user friendly as possible.  

The four sections are:

  1. Section One: Policies
  2. Section Two: Good Practice
  3. Section Three: Recognising and Responding and Reporting Concerns
  4. Section Four: Forms, Templates & Useful Contact Details

We hope that the policy will assist your club/association as we all work towards a safer environment for the future of our sport.
