The purpose of the Welsh Fencing Code of Conduct at Competitions policy is to set clear expectations of behaviour at our closed events for anyone in attendance in any role or capacity. Everyone involved in the sport should promote equality of access and opportunity, fairness and respect. All those involved in fencing have a responsibility to act according to the highest standards of integrity, and to ensure that the reputation of the sport is, and remains, high.

 

Safeguarding is the action we take to promote the welfare of children and adults at risk and to protect them from harm. It is important that sports clubs and organisations provide a safe and positive experience and that means you need to have certain procedures in place.

Welsh Fencing (WF) follows the BFA Policy on Child Protection & Welfare.

Please refer to this link for the BFA policy on this topic.  

Welfare Officers

All Clubs offering fencing to under 18’s and vulnerable adults should have a Welfare Officer in place who is not connected to any coach within the club. All Welfare Officers should be DBS cleared, and preferably be members of Welsh Fencing at an appropriate level, eg Support, if not actively fencing.  For details on how to gain DBS clearance, please follow this link: DBS Registration

In case of difficulty, please contact the WF Welfare Officer.
