Abstract

Report produced for the Child Protection in Sport Unit and the Rugby Football League. Safeguarding and Child Protection (SCP) have now been part of British sport for well over a decade. The RFL was one of the first sports to establish guidelines and procedures in this area when it launched its policy at Wilderspool Stadium, Warrington, in 2003. Edge Hill University (EHU) has established a long-term association with the RFL in relation to child protection and safeguarding research. This is the third report published by Hartill and colleagues on SCP in rugby league since 2002. As December 2013 marked the 10-year anniversary of the RFL’s first child protection policy, it seemed an appropriate time to take stock of progress.
