The role of the club CPO:

  • Ensure all persons working with children & young people at the Club are fully aware of what is required of them within the protocols of the Policy / Code of Good Practice
  • Conduct the administrative work associated with processing information on new volunteers/staff
  • Liaise closely with Club volunteers/staff, ensuring that agreed procedures for the prevention of risk are followed
  • Counsel/advice the Club on matters of policy relating to Child Protection
  • Advise/circulate details of opportunities for volunteers/staff to undertake training
  • Act as the contact person on matters relating to Child Protection at the Club

All helpers in a Childcare role are required to complete a disclosure application at an Enhanced level. It seems administratively burdensome but it is essential that we follow best practice.

The quickest way to organise a disclosure check is to contact Angela & arrange to meet up. Original copies of identification document must be seen by the CPO when processing disclosure forms
