Safeguarding Guidance was updated in November 2015 replacing the RIBI Protection Policy of April 2007.  This is available on the RIBI Members only site (Club & District Support/Compliance/Safeguarding).

Useful advice regarding Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) checks (Process and procedures) is given at page 16 and there are further links to the DBS website to help those seeking checks.  Model policies for Safeguarding Children and Vulnerable Adults can be found.
