As the Governing Body for the sports of snorkelling and scuba diving, the British Sub-Aqua Club wishes to assure parents and guardians that all reasonable precautions will be taken to ensure the safety and well being of children and young people who participate in our activities.

Mary TetleyMary Tetley, BSAC Chief Executive is also the BSACs Safeguarding Officer. BSAC takes its responsibility for all our members and their welfare very seriously. We take great pride in being at the leading edge of the UKs movement to formalising the role of Safeguarding of Children and Vulnerable People.  We work in conjunction with leading organisations such as The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) and the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB).

BSAC's Policy is to encourage all members to take a responsible attitude towards safeguarding the welfare of all vulnerable people. In particular, where young people are concerned, our policy is that people who have significant involvement with young people and vulnerable adults should voluntarily request a CRB disclosure to confirm there is no underlying reason to prevent such contact.

BSAC is able to facilitate this process and is fully registered to carry out these checks which are simple and treated in the strictest confidence.

If anyone has any questions regarding safeguarding issues then Mary can be contacted on 0151 350 6220 or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
