EBF/EWBF Safeguarding  Statement


The English Bowling Federation/English Women’s Bowling Federation fully accepts its legal and moral obligation to exercise its duty of care and to protect all children and vulnerable adults participating in its activities and to safeguard their welfare.  To this end we are members of and subscribe to The Joint Panel for the Protection of Children & Vulnerable Adults of all Bowling Codes  


We are committed to do this by acknowledging that:

  • the welfare of the individual is paramount;
  • each individual irrespective of age, gender, religion, race or disability has the right to protection from abuse;
  • each individual has a right to be safe, and to be treated with respect and dignity


We shall use our best endeavours to ensure that:

  • all allegations of abuse are taken seriously;
  • the response to them is swift and appropriate;
  • the effectiveness of our policy is reviewed regularly;
  • a responsible person shall be appointed as Safeguarding Officer to whom members can address any concerns
