Hello and welcome to the MRFC safeguarding pages.
MRFC 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 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.
MRFC will ensure that is has an excellent disciplinary and safeguarding record and is seen as a beacon of excellence. We must continue to lead by example.
Our Safe Guarding Officer is Sarah Kane, please feel free to contact her on firstname.lastname@example.org or 07968 805 470.
