Dungarvan Rugby Club

Child Welfare

Dungarvan Rugby Football Club is fully committed to upholding  the IRFU Safeguarding Policy.

The IRFU seeks to promote the welfare of all Age-Grade Players so that they develop to the best of their ability in a safe and fun rugby environment. We want to welcome young people to the game so that they thrive in our care. Young people are the lifeblood of our game and their welfare and protection is the primary concern for all adults involved in IRFU.

The IRFU Safeguarding Policy is designed to assist clubs to implement best practice in the area of safeguarding Age-Grade Players – one of our greatest assets of our game – and it is our responsibility to ensure that they remain active in rugby. They will do this when they feel our respect and where their dignity, health and welfare is prioritised.
