Message from Tim Brocklebank, Truro RFC Safeguarding Officer

Children are the lifeblood of the game and it is crucial that they are cared for in the correct manner. Any player under the age of 18 is classed as a child and should be respected as such.
The RFU Safeguarding Children Policy sets out the key principles as well as providing best practice guidance. Everyone shares the responsibility for safeguarding and is thus relevant for all who visit TRFC.
In order to provide children with the best possible experiences and opportunities in rugby it is imperative that everyone operates within an accepted ethical framework and demonstrates exemplary behavior. This not only ensures the game makes a positive contribution to the development of children, safeguards them and promotes their welfare but also protects all personnel from allegations of abuse or poor practice.
All those that are involved in coaching and supporting youth rugby must be checked via the DBS record checking process.
I am the Club Safeguarding Officer for TRFC please advise me of any concerns on 07980295510

Rugby should be Fun, we are committed to enhancing the Rugby experience for children through a child centred approach.
If you have a concern make sure that you report it to the CLUB SAFEGUARDING OFFICER
