All coaches and volunteers who work with young people in rugby are in a position of trust which has been invested in them by parents, the sport, and the young person. This relationship can be described as one in which the adult is in a position of power and influence by virtue of their position,
All young people within rugby, regardless of age, ability, sex, race, religion or belief, ethnic origin, social status or sexual orientation, have the right to be protected from harm.
The rights, dignity and worth of all young people should always be respected.
All coaches and volunteers must familiarise themselves with the WRU Safeguarding Policy and Procedures what is good practice and poor practice.
