MGCC – Child Safeguarding

The MG Car Club – Child Safeguarding.

Safeguarding children is about doing things the right way and allowing children to enjoy themselves without abuse of any kind. That means bullying, physical, emotional or sexual abuse and neglect.

The MG Car Club is devoted to helping you to safeguarding youngsters.

The Right People
Most people who become involved with the MG Car Club do so for all the right reasons; however, it’s important that the Club recognises its responsibility to safeguard and protect children and young people who are involved in any Club activities.

Dealing with Concerns
Every affiliated club, centre, register or branch should follow a Safeguarding Children Policy and Procedure and be aware of who the MGCC’s Child Protection office is. Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility and to make sure we have appropriate safeguards within our club we ask that everyone makes themselves familiar with our safeguarding children policy and procedures for reporting a concern about the welfare of a child.

If a child chooses to take part in Club activities, they have the right to have fun and stay safe. Remember enjoy your time — don’t let anyone else spoil it.

Getting help and advice
If you are worried about the way a member, volunteer, member of staff or anyone else involved in MGCC is behaving towards young people there are people you can talk to.

Talk to someone that you trust.
The Kimber House team is on hand to listen to any concerns you might have and will treat them with complete confidence and utmost importance. Perhaps you would prefer to use one of the websites that offer advice. Some you can email your concern to and they will email you back with advice specifically for you.
