SUPPORT - SAFEGUARDING
The Surrey County Women's Bowling Association follows Bowls England National Guidelines in promoting policies to encourage clubs to adopt and implement the highest standards in their care of children and vulnerable adults . The Association requires that all affiliated clubs also follow these guidelines. Each bowls club should appoint a Club Welfare Officer to assist the club in developing and adopting the BE Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy and Procedures and to assist the club in ensuring a safe and welcoming environment for young players and vulnerable adults.
The Safeguarding Bowls Group has produced a range of documents to assist clubs and counties to provide a safe environment for all members. These include various templates that can be downloaded and easily tailored to meet clubs' requirements.
