Club Welfare

The wellbeing of everyone who comes orienteering is taken very seriously, whatever their age, but we are particularly keen to ensure that juniors can participate in a supportive and safe environment.

This section also contains information on tick awareness and MAROCs photography policy.

Maroc coaches, and other volunteers who have direct contact with youngsters, are all members of the Protecting Vulnerable Groups (PVG) scheme and the club follows child protection policies as set out by the Scottish Orienteering Association:

Anyone who has concerns about child safety or wellbeing should contact the Club Welfare Officer, via the Contacts page. If you are contacting the CWO because of a concern you have for a child or young person, make this clear by entering 'CONCERN FOR A CHILD' in the subject line. If you cannot get hold of the Club Welfare Officer, and there are significant or immediate concerns for a child's safety or wellbeing, please follow the contacts and procedures outlined here:
