CHILD WELFARE:
OUR SAFEGUARDING POLICY



Vobster Diving believes that a child or young person should never experience abuse of any kind. We have a responsibility to promote the welfare of all children and young people and to keep them safe and we are committed to working in a way that protects them.

We recognise that:
  • The welfare of the child is paramount, as enshrined in the Children Act 1989
  • All children, regardless of age, disability, gender, racial heritage, religious belief, sexual orientation or identity, have an equal right to protection from all types of harm or abuse
  • Some children are additionally vulnerable because of the impact of previous experiences, their level of dependency, communication needs or other issues
  • Working in partnership with children, young people, their parents, carers and other agencies is essential in promoting young children's welfare
We will seek to keep children and
young people safe by:
  • Valuing them, listening to and respecting themselves
  • Adopting child protection practices through procedures and a code of conduct for all staff and volunteers
  • Providing effective management for staff and volunteers through supervision, support and training
  • Recruiting staff and volunteers safely, ensuring all necessary checks are made
  • Sharing information about child protection and good practice with children, parents, staff and volunteers
  • Sharing concerns with agencies who need to know and involving parents and children appropriately
Vobster Diving has elected to adopt and follow the British Sub-Aqua Club's safeguarding framework, Buddyguard, details of which can be found below.

The lake was on song this morning; long shadows and rising mist signalling the start of Autumn season and all of the beauty this brings. Plenty of diving and swimming to be had though, with the cooler months bringing the best visibility and jaw-dropping scenery like this. Come on down; he water's just fine.
