What safety standards do we work to?

The Centre regards safety as a high priority and monitors this on a regular basis to ensure it adheres to all current legislation and best practice.

A Duty Manager is present at all times the Centre is open and trained First Aiders are always on site.

We support the HSE’s strategic themes

Sharing our success – Promoting the benefits of a health and safety system

What’s our safeguarding policy?

We recognise and support the aims of the NSPCC’s Child Protection in Sport unit which has a mission is to build the capacity of sports to safeguard children and young people in and through sport and to enable sports organisations to lead the way in keeping children safe from harm. https://thecpsu.org.uk/ They aim to achieve this by:

  • Being a lead voice, champion
  • Providing expert safeguarding and child protection advice
  • Contributing safeguarding knowledge to policies, procedures and programmes
  • Developing and delivering sports specific training, resources and guidance
  • Coordinating, lobbying and advocating on behalf of the sector in response to government consultations
  • Supporting research into a range of issues, developing understanding and an evidence base
  • Consulting with children and young people

Based on current guidelines, we have developed the following safeguarding policies and procedures.
