  • The appointment of a welfare officer (Child protection officer) to whom grievances or complaints can be made confidentially.
  • Ensuring that instructors are suitably trained in child protection and health, safety and welfare issue
  • Ensuring that all instructors have been screened to confirm their suitability to work with children and have the appropriate DBS

  • Ensuring that the participants and parents are aware of the purpose of videoing, filming or photography during training or events and permission forms are signed.
  • Having a zero tolerance level on poor practice, bullying and any potential form of abuse.
