ARG UK Safeguarding Protocols and Responses Jan 2020.pdf
Amphibian & Reptile Groups of UK (ARG UK) is a registered charity (number 1165504) committed to the conservation of native amphibians and reptiles and their natural environment by supporting the development of a network of independent volunteer amphibian and reptile groups (ARGs). Our safeguarding protocols apply equally to our staff, trustees, volunteers and members of the wider public attending our events, activities and training days. We want all of our members and volunteers including children and vulnerable and protected adults to enjoy their involvement with ARG UK and its affiliated groups. To engender this we commit to operating safely, with safeguarding as the top priority, and to act and be seen to act appropriately at all times.
