You may be aware that this differs from the requirements of the health information form and the consent form. This is because we first updated the contact information for the home. We will soon be verifying and updating the health information form and consent form. In the meantime, we have included this requirement in the contact form for the home to reflect best practices. Setting up a home contact system to ensure that parents, caregivers and members know what happens in an emergency is something you need to consider as part of your risk assessment. If the activity takes place outside the usual place, but in your normal time, you may wonder if a home contact would be useful. To make the home contact clear about their role, we have made a role sketch that the home contact should sign to confirm that they will play the role for this event. There is one for international events and one for British events. You can make sure that more than one person is in contact during your stay at home, so one person doesn`t always need to be available. If you do, be sure to agree on a timeline so that you and she know who is responsible and on what dates.
Depending on the situation, the home contact should then: what to do, who you turn to and how you deal with questions in an emergency If, for example, you start and end at the usual meeting place and at the usual time, but spend all or part of the time in another place, your risk assessment helps you identify, What you need to do. This could include having a home contact as an appropriate way to manage risks and ensure that parents or guardians are kept informed of unexpected changes or complications. In this case, you are free to have contact at home. For more information, see our activity guidelines. In the event of an accident or emergency, follow our instructions on what to do in an emergency. After using all relevant emergency or rescue services, update your home contact: the home contact must destroy all personal data after the end of the activity or event. You must not share health information and consent forms with the home contact. If you participate in an activity outside of your normal meeting place and time, you must assign a responsible adult as your home contact. A home contact is a person who you have agreed will be the first point of contact in the event of a change of plan or in the event of an accident or emergency. What will be your next adventure? Find the perfect activity for girls in your unit After advising and advising our chief volunteers, we decided to remove the requirement for consent and health forms that must be kept from home contact for international events. We changed the form to reflect that.
To comply with the privacy rules and our protection policy, it is important that home contacts are only those who are inside Girlguiding, as we share confidential and personal information for which we have the agreement of Girlguiding, not a third party. You need to give the home contact two emergency contacts for each girl and member participating in the event.. . .
