What health and safety measures are taken for this trip?

All staff are fully trained on residential work and safeguarding. All staff have passed an enhanced DBS check. Senior staff and most junior staff have first aid training and all Carlton Lodge activity centre staff are fully first aid trained and DBS checked.

Male and female participants sleep in separate accommodation blocks and are forbidden from entering each other’s rooms.

Groundwork employs two 24-hour external safeguarding experts who are on hand at any point to assist our staff with safeguarding issues.

We ask you for more than one emergency contact so that if anything happens during the trip, we are able to contact someone at home straight away.

Risk assessments are carried out for all stages of the trip and individual risk assessments are carried out in conjunction with parents/guardians for any young people who are deemed particularly vulnerable.
