Welsh Fencing are pleased to announce that we have successfully achieved the Level 1 Standard in Safeguarding & Protecting Children. This followed a detailed review of our Policies and Procedures by the Child Protection in Sport Unit. Safeguarding is an important role in any National Governing Body; achievement of this standard demonstrates that Welsh Fencing provide a safe, effective and child-friendly environment for fencing in Wales. We would like to thank Sport Wales and CPSU for their continued support in achieving this standard.

I’d also like to thank everybody involved and the volunteers in particular, who dedicated their time and skills to help achieve this milestone. I look forward to continuing to work with Welsh Fencing and hope for more success in the future.” Richard Lawrence (National Support Officer for Sport Wales)
