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.

Congratulations to Ainsley Hatt stalwart Halton crew, qualifying as IANTD ART diver this week. Steadfast performance in big dives in challenging conditions. ‘All dives smooth and controlled’ says instructor Hugo Angel. High praise. #mvhalton #otterdrysuits #vqtech.

It’s been an outstanding trip for early season diving aboard MV Halton. All the classics, plus scenic walls and IANTD tech training on both OC and CC. Great crew, amazing team spirit among divers and a huge laugh. It was a pleasure to arrange. Massive weather, cracking food. Thanks everyone. #greenwatercoldsteel #vqtech #iantduk #vobsterquay #mvhalton #otterdrysuits #kubi #nautilusdiving #redbareccr

CCR diving offers an incredible new perspective on your diving ambitions. Ian Humphrey and Ross Freeguard have entered a new and rewarding world. No tech diving experience necessary - ask Ross who has arrived from sport diving to earn his place as a Tech CCR diver. Ian continues his tech progression building on a solid foundation of IANTD ART diving. Proud moments for #vqtech

Five years since we took on rebreather manufacture alongside a lake, IANTD and Tribal Triathlon - there's always something going on at Vobster!
