for the Child's Right to Play

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child is the World's most adopted Treaty, the UK has signed it.   Article 31 of the Convention states:

1. States Parties recognize the right of the child to rest and leisure, to engage in play and recreational activities appropriate to the age of the child and to participate freely in cultural life and the arts.

2. States Parties shall respect and promote the right of the child to participate fully in cultural and artistic life and shall encourage the provision of appropriate and equal opportunities for cultural, artistic, recreational and leisure activity.

Child Protection

All reputable organisations providing play, child-care and recreation services to children (be they local authority, voluntary sector or commercial organisations) want to be sure that the people they employ or who volunteer to work with children in their care are suitable to have continuous and close access to children and young people as a system can devise, and that their management practices are conducive to child protection.

Fair Play for Children's Child Protection in Play Programme has evolved from members' concerns over the past 29 years and includes:


A Model Child Protection Policy which can be adapted to your organisation's needs

    Fair Play for Children recognises the need for a speedy and efficient service for Employers seeking Enhanced Disclosures in respect of those employing people to work as volunteers or staff with children and young people.  These checks are not a guarantee of child protection and safety in themselves, but they form a key part of any successful Child Protection programme.
     
    We now work with our Recommended Provider, Disclosure Services Ltd who provide an excellent service at the lowest cost of which we are aware.
     
    •  
    Disclosure Services Ltd provides a system which:

    1. provides you with a management page showing all applications and their status (in progress, completed etc)
    2. each individual applicant with a link to an application form online
    3. you with a verification and submission process to enable the application to be sent to DSLtd.  They then send it to DBS, which sends the DBS Certificate to the applicant and a notification to DS Ltd who then inform you.
     
    Application Turnround:   This varies a good deal - the e-route is considerably quicker in the main than the paper and is recommended.  Typically, the e-route can be 5 days.   Some applications will take longer, especially if the applicant has moved around a good deal.
     
    Current Costs:
     
    Volunteers, Trustees, Management Committee                                      6.00
    Employed Staff                                                                                  50.00
