Safeguarding

Safeguarding Juniors and Vulnerable Adults

If you are concerned in any way over the conduct of parents, carers or coaches towards children or vulnerable adults you should contact the Club’s welfare Officer Wendy West.

The Welfare Officer role is to safeguard young people and vulnerable adults by the promotion and implementation of the British Orienteering, O-Safe – Child Welfare Policy and Procedures at a club level ( British Orienteering O-Safe Policy). She is also the first point of contact in the club for the reporting of concerns relating to the safety and welfare of children and vulnerable adults.

Wendy can be contacted by telephone on 0116 260 1689


Disclosure and Barring Service

The club expects all adults who are likely to be in situations that need DBS clearance to obtain such approval. Details are on the British Orienteering web site. http://www.britishorienteering.org.uk/images/uploaded/downloads/DBS%20disclosure%20process%20Nov2014.pdf

As there were significant changes to the protection scheme in 2012, we expect the number of members to be low but will apply especially to coaching alone and overnight stays. The Club Treasurer will reimburse you the fee of £12.60 as long as this is agreed with the Development Co-ordinator.
