The Safeguarding Bowls Group consists of representatives from the Bowls Development Alliance, Bowls England, English Indoor Bowling Association Ltd, British Crown Green Bowling Association, English Short Mat Bowling Association and the English Bowling Federation.
All six organisations are committed both individually and jointly to ensuring that bullying in any form has no place within the sport of bowls.
There is 100 per cent commitment from all six organisations to ensure that bowls clubs provide a safe, caring and friendly environment for all bowlers regardless of their age, background or any other characteristic.
Each organisation has procedures in place to ensure that should an incident of bullying occur, they would deal with it promptly and effectively.
Bullying in bowls will not be tolerated.
