The safety of our children is our utmost priority.  All our volunteers must undergo regular DBS checks and provide two references.  If you have any questions or concerns please speak to Vikki Kitcat, our Safeguarding Officer, at one of our SAMBER meetings or call her on the number at the bottom of the page.
