Revised MSA Child Safeguarding Policy published

05
May
2017

The MSA has launched a revised child safeguarding policy to help provide a safe and positive environment for all young people in motorsport.

All MSA-registered clubs are required to adopt the policy, which has been designed to be more user-friendly. There is a template policy document that clubs can use, plus a range of guidance documents on topics such as DBS checks.

The policy includes – but is not limited to – a requirement for all clubs to:

  • Appoint one or more Child Safeguarding Officer (CSO)
  • Inform the MSA Lead Safeguarding Officer of the CSO and maintain current personal contact details
  • Include child safeguarding matters at their management committees and keep records of all discussions
  • Provide support for the CSO and ensure they are included in club communications.

Rob Jones, MSA Chief Executive, said: “The welfare of young people in motorsport is paramount. The MSA Child Safeguarding Policy confirms that all children have the right to enjoy the sport safely, and aligns us with other national governing bodies by providing clear guidance for clubs on how to achieve this.”

The MSA Child Safeguarding Policy can be found in the Policies & Guidelines section of the Resource Centre.
