  1. I have some concerns regarding the service that you are offering.
    1 Who will be responsiblefor the regulation of this service?
    2 Will Criminal Record Checks be under taken on all volunteers?
    3 Have all the volunteers undergone training re Child Protection
    4 Have all volunteers had traing re working with Vulnerable adult
    There are many more safeguarding policies that need to be implemented.
    I wish you all well with the project and I am sure that as a responsble Service Provider you have addressed some or maybe all of my comments
    Many Thanks

    • Thank you Adrian Connor for your questions. Clearly we cannot answer them as we are breaking the news of the meeting being held this Saturday 6th April by the GAU Flying Angels. These questions we are sure will be fully answered at this meeting. As you seem to have a local IP address 9Karakum is it??), do please come along to GAU and you will be able to hear the answers for yourself.

      Thank you again for you help and support for the GAU Flying Angels.

      • Many thanks for your response, however I am unable to attend on Saturday as I have a previous appontment. Hopefully a full report on the presentation will be made available?
