Urdd Gobaith Cymru wishes to protect children from harm. Staff and volunteers in this organisation accept and acknowledge their responsibility to promote child protection issues.

Staff and volunteer checks

Staff checks
Urdd Gobaith Cymru ensures that 100% of full time and part time staff and those in training have been CRB checked. When staff join the Urdd, they follow an induction programme. During the induction period they will receive details and instructions on the Urdd’s child protection policy

The Urdd has nearly 10,000 volunteers who contribute to Urdd activities annually. With so many volunteers to be checked, priority is given to those who are in contact regularly with children. Some volunteers are members of committees or volunteer at events whilst others are leaders of Urdd branches or assist on various trips. If you would like to be CRB checked contact your local development officer. For more information on the CRB contact
