East Lothians Sport, Leisure and Arts Accreditation Scheme
All Clubs in East Lothian running activities for children aged 0-18 years must be approved by Good to Go. Sport and the arts have a positive influence on children but these positive effects can only be achieved if the activity is led by an organisation that places the welfare of children first.
The aim of East Lothain's ‘Good to Go’ Scheme is to ensure that clubs and organisations in East Lothian, offering sport, leisure and arts activities that include young people (0-18yrs), are run in a safe and well organised manner.
The National Agency for sport, sportscotland, in partnership with CHILDREN 1ST, has established a set of minimum standards, known as Minimum Operating Requirements (MOR), to protect the welfare of children while they participate in sport.
East Lothian Council, Enjoyleisure and FES Fm ltd would now like to work with your organisation to ensure the same high standards exist in all organisations that utilise our facilities. Our new Scheme uses these MOR as its basis and Clubs will therefore be required to provide the following :
Please do not worry if you don’t have the necessary documents/procedures in place. The manager of the facility where your activity takes place or appropriate contact will be able to provide you with support in areas where your club does not have existing procedures and practices.
Your organisation will need to have these procedures and practices in place in order to renew any extended let at any facility in East Lothian.
For more information please contact your facility manager or download the application form below and email to firstname.lastname@example.org
