November 2016 has sadly seen the issue of child protection within sporting activities back in the news and here at the ABC we think that these headlines, however distressing, serve as a reminder that Child Protection, or Safeguarding, is a vital component in the operational requirements of our member facilities – and one that should be reviewed as a regular and standard part of your wall management procedures.
Obviously we know that our members take this issue highly seriously,but if its a while since you’ve visited your organisations policies and procedures then the following links may be of use:
