Club must complete annual RFU safeguarding audit by end of September

17 Sep 2019 11:15 | Devon RFU

CLUBS are reminded that they should complete their annual RFU Safeguarding self-audit by Monday,  September 30, 2019.

The audit can be found in the questionnaire section of GMS. If you completed the audit before Monday, August 16, could you please double check that the status is ‘submitted’ if it states that the questionnaire is ‘open’ please submit again.

The self-audit will help the RFU and your Constituent Body safeguarding managers to identify clubs that may need some further support in safeguarding; CBSMs will continue to undertake a more in depth audit with 10 per cent of their clubs.

If your club does not have an age grade section, or 17-year-olds playing adult rugby, please just declare this on the form and you will not be expected to answer further questions.

The RFU Safeguarding team are happy to answer any questions, or offer assistance and can be contacted by emailing
