Safeguarding Bowls Success

The Bowls Development Alliance (BDA) is delighted to announce that the sport of bowls has achieved the Advanced Standards Award in Safeguarding following a successful application to the NSPCC.

Working together with Bowls England (BE), English Indoor Bowling Association (EIBA), English Short Mat Bowling Association (ESMBA), British Crown Green Bowling Association (BCGBA) and the English Bowling Federation (EBF) policies, procedures, guidelines and templates have been developed which will be used across all five of the National Governing Bodies. This will ensure a joined-up approach when dealing with issues or concerns raised by clubs or individuals.

Information on safeguarding can be found at www.safeguardingbowls.org. The documents available on the website will be updated in January 2017 to reflect any changes in legislation.

Susan Cooper the Development Director of the BDA commented, "The bringing together of all bowls organisations to work on safeguarding will go a long way to ensure that the sport of bowls is a safe sport for everyone to play”

Information on training courses available to all Club Welfare Officers can also be found on the website
