Boccia England is committed to creating and maintaining a safe and positive environment for everyone to participate in boccia.  We all have a responsibility to safeguard the welfare of anyone involved in boccia and to protect them from poor practice, bullying or abuse.

As a National Governing Body of sport, Boccia England has a moral and legal obligation to ensure that the highest possible standard of care is provided for everyone involved in the sport.

Boccia England has achieved the Child Protection in Sport Units Advanced Safeguarding Standard. This standard ensures we provide a framework for all those involved in our sport to help them create a safe sporting environment for children and young people and protect them from harm.
