Welcome to Winchester RFC Safeguarding Pages

Hello and welcome to the WRFC safeguarding pages.

WRFC takes seriously its policy that all of its young players are allowed to play rugby in a safe environment and will take whatever steps are necessary to achieve this.
Each and every club member must also play their part by reading and observing the club’s safeguarding policies and the Codes of Conduct. It is important that you report to me any incident of “bad practice” or behaviour which may fall short of the standard expected by club members, or by any visitors to the club, in order that the appropriate steps may be taken.
For a club of its size, WRFC has an excellent disciplinary and safeguarding record and is seen as a beacon of excellence. We must continue to lead by example.
If you need to contact us please use safeguardingofficer@winchesterrugby.com


We will be happy to speak with you, in confidence if need be, regarding any matter.
