FAQS

Do our volunteers need to be DBS checked?

No, but please read our infosheet on Safeguarding and volunteer checks for more information.

Are we insured if there are injuries at an event run by our PTA?

Parentkind members have comprehensive insurance cover provided by Zurich Municipal through their Parentkind membership. View your insurance documents.

Do we need to employ a professional first aider at our event?

That depends on the size and scale of your event. Check out our guide to First Aid here.

What's an Event Safety plan?

This is where you keep all the information you need to refer to in one place and will be the basis of your briefings to volunteers/contractors etc. Keeping everything in one place (in folder or one document) will make it easy for any one of the committee working on specific areas to access this information and add to it if necessary.  See our Event Safety Plan checklist.
