What to do if

There will be occasions within Rugby League where concerns emerge relating to the behaviour of individuals.

Where a child or young person may be in immediate danger or needs medical attention, 999 should be called.

For serious concerns, issues can be reported to the Child Protection Units at the Local Police, or Children's Social Care Services (formerly Social Services) or the Local Safeguarding Children's Board.

The RFL recommend all Club Welfare Officers to have contact details for the above agencies.

The RFL encourage everyone in the game to report all concerns to the RFL (either directly or through a Club or Regional Welfare Officer) no matter how minor they may appear.

To report a concern to the RFL, please complete an Incident Report Form or call the Safeguarding team on 0844 477 7113 (option 6).

The RFL's Reporting Procedures can be viewed in the downloads section opposite.
