RugbySafe is the RFU’s overarching Player Safety and Wellbeing Programme.
It puts Player Welfare at the heart of the game and covers how to organise and manage the game so that it is played in a safe and enjoyable manner.
The CRFU are acutely aware that prevention is better than cure. RugbySafe provides guidance and resources for all rugby activity organisers on what needs to be in place to be RugbySafe compliant.
The CRFU recognise that Physical Wellbeing and Mental Health go hand in hand with developing a positive Player Welfare culture whilst keeping the rugby community healthy.
Clubs and organisers of rugby activities have a responsibility towards the health and safety of players, staff and volunteers.
Appropriate measures for training, first aid provision and equipment should be in place
to ensure that rugby union is delivered to the highest standards in a safe and enjoyable
The RugbySafe Toolkit is a series of online and downloadable resources designed to provide information and guidance on various player welfare topics and provides information and guidance to support clubs and other rugby activity organisers in delivering best practice.
The CRFU Rugby Safe Lead, Reggie Gough, overseas all matters and issues relating to RugbySafe throughout Cornwall and acts as the overarching support for all nominated Cornish Rugby Club RugbySafe Leads, County and Club Officials, Volunteers and Parents.
