Selection Of Club Members Working Directly With Children Or Vulnerable Adults

An important aspect of a Safeguarding Policy within a club is the selection of those members who may be working with or taking responsibility for junior members or vulnerable adults on a regular basis.

When selecting members who will be taking direct responsibility for junior or vulnerable adult members, the Club must assure itself as far as is reasonable, from its experience and knowledge of the member that he or she is suitable for this role.

Implementation of a policy requires that all members working directly with juniors or vulnerable adult members on a regular basis to have an Enhanced DBS check.

DBS checks can be instigated as detailed at step 4 above.

It is the Club’s responsibility to ensure that the following are in place:

  • DBS Certificate is current
  • Relevant qualifications are confirmed if appropriate.
  • Role requirements and responsibilities are clarified.
  • Club Safeguarding procedures are explained.
