Club Safeguarding and Welfare
Safeguarding and Welfare Policy
See the following link for the clubs latest safeguarding statement.
LSAC has a dedicated Welfare Officer, currently this is: Ruth Adams.
You can contact the welfare officer in confidence should you have any questions about safeguarding or any other welfare issues.
The welfare officer is elected to the committee at each Annual General Meeting and is responsible for:
- Being the primary contact, maintaining confidential records and ensuring suitable action is taken for any reported welfare cases
- Liaising with BSAC HQ on the protection of children and vulnerable adults
- Implementing and promoting the clubs policy and procedures, including general communication with members to encourage good practice
- Keeping abreast of developments and understanding the latest information on data protection, confidentiality and other legal issues that impact on the protection of children and vulnerable adults.
Disclosure Barring Service (DBS)
All of the LSAC instructors undergo a DBS (formerly known as the Criminal Records Bureau / CRB) check every 3 years confirming no previous history that would prevent them from working with children or vulnerable adults.
