ChildFund and Oceania Rugby have announced a new partnership – to strengthen safeguarding systems for young people, participating in rugby activities in the Oceania region.
The wellbeing of young people participating in sports, has become an increasingly prominent concern among major sporting bodies, including the International Olympic Committee.
Through membership with World Rugby, Oceania Rugby is committed to ensuring rugby is a safe sport, for all children taking part across the region.
The project will see Oceania Rugby undertake a review of best practices, and implementation of a regional framework.
The increased focus on child safeguards among sporting bodies – has led to the emergence of important new initiatives and policies.
ChildFund is considered a pioneer organisation, in the development of International Safeguards for Children in Sport.
