Safer Recruitment (Suitability Checks)

Everybody should be able to enjoy motorsport in a safe environment. We all have a responsibility to protect and safeguard children and adults at risk. Motorsport UK is committed to providing a safe and positive environment for all of those involved. Part of this commitment is to ensure appropriate and proportionate checks of people who work and volunteer in our sport in order to protect children and adults at risk, from harm or abuse.

An integral component to the implementation of safer recruitment is ensuring suitability checks are completed for those working or volunteering in roles that are defined as regulated activity.

Regulated activity refers to certain job functions that when associated with children or adults at risk require a suitability check to be completed in order to participate. The criteria for regulated activity differs slightly in certain nations.
