Child Protection

Fife Canoeing and Activities Group (FCAG) has a duty of care towards children and vulnerable adults. A number of measures, in accordance with the Scottish Canoe Association (SCA) guidance, have been put into place by the club to safeguard them from harm.

With the introduction of the Protecting Vulnerable Groups (PVG) scheme, there have been significant changes to FCAG's procedures.

All members must adhere to the FCAG Code of Conduct. This code refers to behaviour towards both children and adults. Anyone who breaches the code may be removed from the club.

Club coaches and leaders, and those wishing to assist with activities involving juniors, must be approved to work within the club. This may involve registration with the PVG (Protecting Vulnerable Groups) scheme.

The club has an identified Child Protection Officer and child protection policy.

Please note that the club child protection documentation, linked to below, has not yet been brought up to date.
