Important information about organisations and services on this directory
Not all groups/activity providers are required to be registered and these groups may not be regulated in any way. Where a group does require registration, e.g. most childcare – we receive confirmation and details from the regulating body Ofsted. Where a service is not required to be registered they may be eligible for registration under Ofsted’s Voluntary Childcare Register and we encourage all these groups to apply for registration. Many of the services and groups listed on this site are not registered or regulated in any way. However, a good service will welcome questions about their activities and how they ensure safety. It is important that you remember that:
Parents and carers have a right and a responsibility to ensure that their children are safe at all times.
Listen to your children and ask questions about their activities
Services have a responsibility to be open and welcoming and to share information about themselves and their activities.
Even where a service is regulated it is still important that you ask questions and use your judgement to ensure that your children remain safe.
Further information and guidance about keeping your children safe
At the beginning of each of the lists of activities information section, you will see the heading ‘Have fun and be safe.’ Please take the time to read this guidance.
