Child Protection

At the Scottish Sub Aqua Club (ScotSAC) we want Junior members (all children and young people under 18 years) to stay safe and have fun while taking part in snorkelling and scuba activities. Everyone involved in ScotSAC has a duty to safeguard the welfare of all juniors in their care. ScotSAC has made a commitment to promote safe practice and to protect juniors from harm, abuse and exploitation. This duty extends to the prevention of physical, sexual or emotional abuse of any junior and shall be applied regardless of a junior’s gender, race, religion, sexuality or disability. You can read our Child Protection Policy, Code of Conduct and Procedure for Responding to Concerns below; or take a note of the following relevant contacts should you need them.
