Milltown Singers Safeguarding Policy
From time to time we may have young people singing with us. So that we are compliant as far as Safeguarding is concerned we have adopted a Safeguarding Policy similar to those for other choirs.
The Designated Safeguarding Person (DSP) is Gill Nunn, our Treasurer. She has an enhanced DBS Certificate as the Chair of Governors at two primary schools and is also the DSP at her local church.
