Safeguarding Children duties apply to any Charity working with, or coming into contact with, anyone under the age of 18. As a Charity is it our job to :
- protect children from abuse and maltreatment
- prevent harm to children’s health or development
- ensure children grow up with the provision of safe and effective care
- take action to enable all children and young people to have the best outcomes
The Management Committee of Buckingham Youth Clubs Ltd is firmly committed to the welfare of all young people who use its facilities and in protecting them from physical, sexual and emotional harm.
The Club will aim to ensure that all young people meet in a safe environment with people they can trust. It will also ensure that all risks that young people may encounter are carefully assessed and the necessary steps are taken to minimize and manage them
If you are concerned about a safeguarding issue please contact our Designated Safeguarding Lead ( DSL) Vicki Eves on Vicki@buckinghamyc.org.uk

Keeping Children Safe at Youth Clubs
All staff and Volunteers are required to have DBS checks and attend, bi-annually, a Safeguarding Awareness Course. The training is delivered by a qualified train-the-trainer instructor from Action 4 Youth. As part of the safeguarding awareness, it is also a requirement for all staff to be familiar with our Safeguarding Policies and Procedures.
