“It feels nice to be part of a group who help each other and are friendly. It makes me feel special.” 

Maddison, aged 10.

What do the clergy think?

“I have been involved with CLCGB since 1969 and have seen how precious it was and what a difference it made in my Parish, All Saints & Martyrs Langley, which had a huge Company. It brings what young people need to young people, it gives them friendship, it gives them fellowship and fun."

Bishop Jack Nichols

St Martin’s policy is to provide safe and healthy working conditions for Centre personnel and all users of its facilities.

 

 

1. The Safety Officer for St Martin’s House Centre (the Centre) is Mr. Martin Lambourne.

 

2. Any Member of Personnel becoming aware of unsafe working practices, or unsafe equipment or working conditions should report this to the Safety Officer or, in any emergency, to the Duty Warden of the centre.

 

3. The topic of "Health and Safety" will be on the agenda of meetings of the Brigade Council at least three times each calendar year.

 

4. The Centre by the nature of its environment and activities has a variety of potential dangers and risks not normally present in one workplace. The presence of, trees, tree surgery equipment, open fires, pressure stoves, reservoirs, ponds, adventure courses, walls, water activities (paddling), vehicles, office and workshop tools and equipment: as well as the use of the sites by large numbers of young people, means that all centre personnel, instructors, voluntary helpers and users must be particularly vigilant and continually searching for safe working practices. Particular but not exclusive dangers are:

(a.) Trailers, mini buses, site machinery and other vehicles used by employees of St Martin’s house and/or by authorised centre personnel only

(b.) Wood piles

(c.) Roofs of buildings

(d.) Adventure courses

 

5. Leaders of visiting groups must ensure that all their members are properly supervised at all times whilst on site since there is equipment on site some of which is provided for the member’s enjoyment and is dangerous if used unsupervised. Whilst the Centre Personnel will keep a look out for dangerous behaviour it is the visiting Leaders who are responsible for the safety and supervision of their members.

 

6. It is a requirement that all who use the Centre facilities act in a reasonable and proper way with regard to their personal behaviour, their care of the facilities, the conduct of activities, the duty of care, risk assessment and health and safety issues.

 

7. It is a further requirement that those who conduct activities have the appropriate training, expertise, accreditation, authorisation, and where appropriate, qualifications to do so.

 

8. NOTE – The Group leader must remain on the relevant site whilst his group is under instruction from Centre Personnel. He should have in his possession all documentation referring to names, addresses and home contact details of the Group under instruction.

 

9. CHILD PROTECTION MEASURES - It is the policy of The Church Lad’s and Church Girl’s Brigade to safeguard the welfare of all members and users of its premises by protecting them from physical, sexual, and emotional harm. In order to meet these responsibilities, St Martin’s House require that users of its facilities sign below, undertaking that all adults in their party are deemed as suitable to work with young people by their own organisation and that any contravention of the Child Protection Code of Practice could lead to the CLCGB initiating its reporting and referral procedures.

 

 

NOTE: Making a signature of acceptance of the above requirements is an integral part of the booking form  and a pre-requisite of anyone using the site or its facilities.
