Safety & Safeguarding
The safety and well-being of every individual on our holidays is of paramount importance.
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. You can find a copy of our Safeguarding Statement here. All staff, trustees and volunteers are required to undergo an Enhanced Disclosure from the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) every three years and also have satisfactory references in place as part of our Safeguarding Policy. Staff and volunteers receive regular safeguarding training and we are members of safeguarding charity Thirtyone:eight. There is a medically qualified leader on hand with responsibility for healthcare during the holidays.
If you have any safeguarding concerns or want to report a safeguarding matter relating to the Titus Trust please contact our Safeguarding Co-ordinator, Rosie Dunn, on 0300 302 0145 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 No. 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.
