Safety & Safeguarding
We take safety very seriously, and abide by a very strict code of requirements for all our activities.
We hold an Activity Licence from the Adventure Activities Licensing Authority, (Titus Trust South, Reference No. R1415), for Watersports. The AALA is part of the Health and Safety Executive and licensing is administered by the Adventure Activities Licensing Service.
All activities are supervised by experienced adults with the necessary national qualifications, such as the National Pool Lifeguard Qualification, or equivalent. We make every effort to ensure that all activities listed are available, but when we are not able to provide adequate supervision for an activity it will not be included in the programme. For watersports participants must be confident in the water.
There is a medically qualified leader on hand with responsibility for health care during the holidays. We are pleased to hold an excellent safety record, but are, of course, fully covered by Public Liability Insurance.
The safety and well-being of every individual on our holidays is of paramount importance. As part of this commitment, our safeguarding policy is regularly reviewed and updated to keep it in line with the very latest best practice.
All staff, trustees and volunteers are required to undergo an Enhanced Disclosure from the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS), and to provide two referees from whom we take up references. Staff and volunteers receive regular training on safeguarding children and young people. We are members of the Churches’ Child Protection Advisory Service (CCPAS).
