Dear Members At our annual Safeguarding Conference in London this week, we announced the ‘soft’ launch of the Safeguarding and Child Protection Association (Sacpa) prior to full launch in the new year.
Sacpa is a sister association owned by the BSA and will act as a membership organisation to all those involved in child protection and the safeguarding of young people and vulnerable adults, alongside and building on BSA’s safeguarding work. Sacpa’s services will include a website, regular newsletter, guidance, advice, training, resources, representation to government and an expanded Sacpa/BSA annual conference. BSA Chief Operating Officer Aileen Kane is leading Sacpa as its launch Director and Dr Steve Bailey, Headmaster of Twyford School, is Chair of the Sacpa Advisory Board.
Sacpa membership is open to all individuals, groups, schools, associations or companies involved in safeguarding and child protection, including, at a 50% discount, BSA member schools, their DSLs and Safeguarding Governors. We have already received expressions of interest in membership and if you are interested in joining, or finding out more, please contact aileen.kane@sacpa.org.uk.
