Vulnerable Persons

The Burgess Hill District Lions Club recognises its duty to comply with the Safeguarding Vulnerable Persons Act 2006.

Lions Multiple District 105 has developed an overall Policy to cover this Act and ensure Lions Clubs throughout the UK have guidelines for compliance.

Consequently we have developed our own policy documents in consultation with the main users of our services to enable us to comply with this Act for all the activities that we undertake.

We have appointed a Vulnerable Persons Officer and he has developed in conjunction with the Vulnerable Persons Committee an Action Plan and Policy Document for the Club in dealing with Vulnerable Persons.

These documents have been issued to all members and can be downloaded here.
