SAFEGUARDING CHILDREN AND VULNERABLE ADULTS POLICY

Chesterfield Philharmonic Choir recognises its duty to foster vigilance amongst its members for the rights of all members, but particularly of children (under 18 years of age) and vulnerable adults (due to mental illness, physical or learning disability, age related illness or frailty) to be treated with dignity and respect and provided with appropriate support.

Our Chairman will be the ‘Named Person’ to whom any member is expected to report any suspicions they have of inappropriate behaviour. The Chairman will consider whether it is appropriate to bring the complaint before the Committee, and whether Social Services and/or the Police should be consulted. Action taken will be recorded in a secure area of the choir archive.

Parents, guardians and carers will be expected to take responsibility when their vulnerable charges are 
• Attending concerts
• Travelling to and from our meetings

Parents, guardians and carers should be aware that 
• We occasionally take photographs of the choir, some for inclusion on our website, which might include their charges
• In the event of injury, we have first aiders who, if present, might give assistance
• In the event of failure of their transport arrangements, a young or vulnerable person might be brought home by car by a choir member
