Safeguarding Children and Vulnerable Adults


The English Short Mat Bowling Association (ESMBA) is included under the umbrella of the Bowls Joint Panel for the Protection of Children and Vulnerable Adults. ESMBA adhere to the principals and procedures adopted by the Bowls Governing Bodies Joint Panel for the Protection of Children and Vulnerable Adults.

As such, DSMBA recognise and acknowledge their joint and several responsibilities to establish policies which promote and encourage affiliated counties and clubs to adopt the highest possible standards of care towards children and other vulnerable people participating in the Game of Bowls and have therefore created its own set of policies  towards protection of Children and Vulnerable adults in line with The Bowls Development Alliance Group consisting of Bowls England, EIBA and ESMBA
