CRAVEN POTHOLE CLUB LIMITED
CHILD PROTECTION POLICY
1.00 THE LEGAL FRAMEWORK
1.01 Craven Pothole Cub Ltd recognises the requirements of the Protection of Children Act 1999 (PoCA).
1.02 PoCA includes "children", that is under 16s’ and "young persons", that is young people recognised as children under the act, (further referred to here with equal meaning as "young persons" or “children").
1.03 PoCA takes in sexual, emotional and physical abuse and also "neglect" (which includes all aspects of failure to ensure the safety of a young persons and vulnerable adults).
2.00 POLICY STATEMENTS
2.01 Craven Pothole Club Ltd recognises the importance of the welfare of young persons and vulnerable adults and their right to protection from abuse as set out in section 1.00 of this document.
2.02 Craven Pothole Club Ltd recognises its duty of care to young persons and vulnerable adults, for the actions of its trustees, officers & agents.
2.03 Craven Pothole Club Ltd will take all allegations of child abuse seriously and will respond to such allegations quickly.
2.04 Craven Pothole Club Ltd considers that in any caving or mine exploration activity safety of the participants and conservation of the cave is of paramount concern at all times.
2.05 Underlying this it must be borne in mind that Craven Pothole Club Ltd does not proactively promote the participation of young persons or vulnerable adults in caving or mine exploration. It takes this stance for a number of reasons:
- caving can often be a strenuous activity requiring a mature physical and mental approach
- a working knowledge of weather patterns & limestone hydrology can be vital for safe caving
- caves are a strictly limited physical resource that deserve a mature appreciation of their conservation requirements.
The exploration of caves, potholes, mines and other underground features should only be undertaken by individuals or groups with the necessary specialist equipment, training and experience.

The Craven Pothole Club runs caving meets once or twice a month. These are publicised via the meets card and on this web site and inform cavers of the type of cave, how it will be rigged, either on ladder or SRT (Single Rope Technique), and its difficulty. We arrange novice meets to allow newcomers to experience the underground world with the knowledge that they are being led by experienced cavers.
Club members regularly arrange extra trips either to go caving, including “digging” to look for new caves, walking, skiing, cycling (on and off-road), mountaineering, climbing, open-water and cave diving. We use camping facilities and bunk-houses all over the country to enable these activities and a certain amount of after activity suppin’ goes on.
In addition to the Club’s published caving diary, we have walking and cycling meets in The Yorkshire Dales, The Lake District, Scotland and Wales. We encourage participation at every level including the families of our members.
Expeditions are arranged to enable members to cave worldwide. The most recent trips have been to China, New Zealand, France and Spain, to explore known caves and search for new ones. Previously members have organised or participated in caving expeditions to Iran, Ecuador, New Guinea, New Britain, Borneo, Morocco, Canada, the USA and many parts of Europe.
