Safeguarding

At RFUK, working with and for vulnerable people is at the heart of everything we do. We have a zero-tolerance approach against any form of sexual harassment, exploitation and abuse, and do everything in our power to ensure that our activities do not inadvertently impact the communities we work with.

Anyone (including our staff, partners and the communities we work with) can raise a concern about something they have witnessed or experienced without fear of reprisals. If you would like to raise a concern with RFUK about the behaviour of a staff member or other representative of the organisation, there are several ways that you can do this:
