Welfare and Safeguarding

BDF adopted the British Fencing policy on Safeguarding and Child Protection in 2018.

BDF believed that collectively as an active and sporting community the welfare of children and adults at risk is everyone’s responsibility.  As part of their commitment as a National Governing Body, their Welfare Official was Rick Rodgers.

All registered clubs with British Fencing must have a named Welfare Officer, and a Safeguarding and Child Protection policy in place.
