Dear Parent/ Guardian
At St Veep Youth Group we believe that the safety of our young people and children is very important. In order for us to maintain high levels of safety and protection of young people involved in our groups. As an organisation we ensure that all our leaders are DBS Checked and that they are all given training on appropriate leading and behaviour around children and young people.
In order to do please could you complete the form below or alternatively, download and print a copy and return. Alongside this we are aiming to build up records of emergency numbers of all our young people and children alongside details of any medical conditions and allergies they may have. This allows us to improve the safety of them further.
The final item on the slip which is enclosed allows will allow me to contact your son/ daughter concerning various events happening, for example this might be a group text reminding your son/daughter of an event. The slip also allows us permission to use any photos and videos which we take during groups to be used to promote the work of the group further, this may involve them going onto galleries on our website for visitors to see or appearing on posters.
If you could fill in the slip and return it as soon as possible it would be a great help.
Anna and Richard Brown
