Safeguarding for Coaches

Bowls England policy is that all bowls clubs must have a Safeguarding Officer in place by April 2025.

The Essex Bowls Coaches Association (ECBA) recommends that coaches undertake courses offered by Coach Bowls and/or attends the new ECBA awareness course which was launched in April 2024.  This training must have taken place within the last 3 years.  Course dates will be published here.  Safeguarding courses in other industry sectors are also acceptable. 

All safeguarding concerns must be reported to the Bowls England Lead Safeguarding Officer for advice.  Email is

All safeguarding concerns must be formally reported. We would recommend working with your club safeguarding officer and using this form.

This is a poster which you might want to display in your clubhouse and make more widely awailable.
