Safeguarding policy for children and vulnerable adults

As the Governing Body for the sports of snorkelling and SCUBA diving, the British Sub-Aqua Club (BSAC) wishes to assure parents and guardians that all reasonable precautions will be taken to ensure the safety and well being of young children and juveniles who participate in the activities of BSAC.

My role as Chief Executive incorporates the role of BSAC's Safeguarding Officer. BSAC takes its responsibility for all our members and their welfare very seriously and consequently we take great pride in remaining at the leading edge of the UK's steady movement to formalising the role of Safeguarding of Vulnerable people and work in conjunction with leading organisations such as The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) and the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).

BSAC's Policy is to encourage all members to take a responsible attitude towards safeguarding the welfare of all vulnerable people. In particular,where young people are concerned, our policy is that people who have significant involvement with young people and vulnerable adults should voluntarily request a DBS disclosure to confirm there is no underlying reason to prevent such contact.

BSAC is able to facilitate this process and is fully registered to carry out these checks which are simple and treated in the strictest confidence. See: BSAC Policy statement on the secure storage, handling, use, retention and disposal of disclosures and disclosure information.

If anyone has any questions regarding Safeguarding issues then I can be contacted on 0151 350 6220 or email

Mary Elizabeth Tetley, BSAC Safeguarding Officer
