STATEMENT FOR THE PROTECTION OF CHILDREN AND VULNERABLE ADULTS


We believe that everyone has a duty of care towards children and young people with whom they have contact, to safeguard and protect them and other vulnerable people from abuse.


 Everybody, whether administrator, official coach or bowler involved in working with children, young people and vulnerable adults in any capacity, has a responsibility to be informed about, and to know what precautions or steps to take for its prevention.
