S.A.P.A ensure the centre and all activities meet with Health and Safety.  Staff are responsible for providing a socially and emotionally safe environment.


An understanding of the young people and their circumstances is fundamental. While at the playground the young people’s best interests will be considered first by staff in all matters.

We operate a tuck shop during each session.  It is good practice to ask young children to hand in their tuck shop money, as lost money cannot be replaced.

If you require further information as the Project Leader.  At S.A.P.A we have a statutory duty of care to report any concerns we have about a child/children in our care to Social Services.   All our staff and volunteers are DBS checked and hold first aid certificates.


Parents or Guardians with a complaint about the service, staff, management or users of the project should ask for a copy of the complaints procedure, which details what action is available to them. 
If you wish to make a complaint, please do so immediately, as we cannot act on rumour or hear say after an event.  If you have a problem with a child other than your own, please under no circumstances  approach them.  Please relay your complaint to a member of staff.
