Safeguarding & Compliance

WE ALL HAVE THE RESPONSIBILITY FOR SAFEGUARDING CHILDREN - THE OBJECTIVE IS KEEPING CHILDREN SAFE

 

Working Together 2018 and the childrens and Social Work Act 2017 provides statutory guidance,
definitions and specifies inter-agency working to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.

 

Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is defined as
- protecting children from maltreatment.

- preventing impairment of children's health or development.

- ensuring that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care; and

taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes.

I am a Director of the YBL and within my portfolio is Safeguarding.
Within the Region I am the single point of contact for safeguarding for children and adults, sometimes referred to as a DO (Designated Officer).
I am a member of Basketball England’s Safeguarding Case Management Group.
My background is from policing, having over 32 years’ experience within public protection for both children and adults.
I offer advice and support to clubs, players, parents, and leagues.
I collate information for safeguarding complaints.
I am available to work with clubs and leagues within the area to assess and review current safeguarding policies and procedures.
Within basketball I am a coach, a table official and referee. I played in local league for West Midlands Police, and I am part of the Police GB Women’s Basketball Team.

Below you will find information for local authorities within the Region should a safeguarding concern be raised,
and further advice is needed, or you need to make a referral. These could be concerns raised by the child, by what you have seen or observed.
Please ring 999 if the incident is an emergency or a child is in immediate danger or immediate risk of harm.

Referrals to the Local Authority Designated Office (LADO) should be made where there are concerns that someone who works with children may have:

a. Behaved in a way that has harmed, or may have harmed, a child
b. Possibly committed a criminal offence against, or related to, a child; or
c. Behaved towards a child or children in a way that indicates that they may pose a risk of harm to children.

I am happy to make any LADO referrals if the threshold for referral is met.
