Safeguarding Policy

The Poole Maritime Trust has a formal Safeguarding Policy with the object of the safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults participating in Trust activities. This requires that children or vulnerable adults should be accompanied by a suitable carer or assistant when taking part in Trust activities.
If, notwithstanding the above, abuse of a child or vulnerable adult is suspected in connection with Trust activities or on Trust premises, the matter must be reported immediately to at least two Committee members who will verify the facts as far as possible, record them in writing and pass the matter on to an appropriate authority.
The full policy document is available for inspection by contacting the Secretary.
