Safeguarding

Our safeguarding policy, incorporating child protection and procedures, is as follows:

  • Walton Firs Foundation is committed to the safeguarding of children and young people.
  • Welfare is paramount and we are committed to implementing procedures and maintaining a code of conduct, which is based on government guidance 'Working Together to Safeguard Children 2006', or as subsequently amended, with the intention of endeavouring to ensure that no child or young person using the centre's facilities will be placed at risk of harm.
  • References are taken for all trustees, directors, staff and volunteers and checks are made through the Disclosure and Barring Service, or such other agency as may be appropriate.
  • If you are visiting us as part of a youth organisation we require that all adults (18 and over) within your group have undergone the relevant checks and training required by your organisation, and have a DBS check confirming they are suitable to work alongside young people.
  • We will respond without delay to any complaint made that a child or young person visiting The Centre may have been harmed.

Risk Assesments

We take safety extremely seriously at Walton Firs and all of our activities have been risk assessed, with copies of these documents available for group leaders to download below. All the activities we run are also covered by our own insurance policies.  

Groups are expected to do their own risk assessment for any activity, such as tree climbing, not reviewed by ourselves, and to have appropriate insurance in place.
