Safety & Safeguarding
Safety is a top priority at Lymington Rushmore. We take our responsibility of looking after those in our care very seriously.
As part of our commitment to the safety and well-being of every individual on our holidays, our safeguarding policy is regularly reviewed and updated to keep it in line with the very latest best practice. All staff, trustees and volunteers are required to undergo an Enhanced Disclosure from the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) (formerly the Criminal Records Bureau) every three years and also have satisfactory references in place as part of our Safeguarding Policy. Staff and volunteers receive regular training on safeguarding children and young people. We are members of the Churches’ Child Protection Advisory Service (CCPAS). There is a medically qualified leader on hand with responsibility for healthcare during the holidays.
You can find a copy of our safeguarding policy here. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
All activities are supervised by experienced adults with the necessary national qualifications, such as Royal Yachting Association Dinghy Sailing Senior Instructor, Windsurfing Senior Instructor, British Canoe Union Coach or equivalent. We make every effort to ensure that all activities listed are available, but when we are not able to provide adequate supervision for an activity it will not be included in the programme. For watersports participants must be confident in the water.
We hold an Adventure Activities Licensing Authority Licence for Watersports (Titus Trust South, Reference # R1415). The AALA is part of the Health and Safety Executive and licensing is administered by the Adventure Activities Licensing Service. Details of the licence can be confirmed via www.aals.org.uk.
The Titus Trust holds Public Liability Insurance covering all our holidays.
