From BCGBA: All clubs must have a Safeguarding Official by 1st March 2019. If the official is a member of more than one club then they can cover all clubs they play for. If not, such clubs will be subject to a £25 fine, increasing by a further £25 for each succeeding 3 months without such a person, with the ultimate sanction of being barred from playing.
Just to remind you all, the recommended Action Plan for Clubs is as follows:
1. Identify an individual
2. Arrange for a DBS application to be completed through the BCGBA
3. Show the certificate to the County Safeguarding Officer / Evidence Checker / Counter Signatory.
4. Advise Club Members who the nominated Safeguarding Officer is. This can be done by printing a copy of the Safeguarding Policy from the Safeguarding Website, adding the name of your Safeguarding Officer and then posting it on your Club notice board.
5. Ensure your Safeguarding Officer has a place on your committee to feedback any updates in policy.
6. Let the Merseyside Registrar have full details of the Safeguarding Officer for your Club. (This must be done by 30/6/2019 to avoid a fine)
