Logo for "In Safe Hands Five Star Care" featuring a gold emblem with stars and a butterfly design on the left, and the company name in blue text on the right.

We go above and beyond to protect the safety and wellbeing of everyone in our care.

Our long-standing dedication to safety has led to us holding over 15 governing and safety accreditations, and we voluntarily apply for Ofsted inspections to be on the Childcare Register.

Everything we do is built on five protective pillars:

Safe people banner

Safe People People are at the heart of all we do. From our ‘safer recruitment’ process (including enhanced DBS for all centre colleagues) to our in-depth training programmes, continuous development and supervision, we go the extra mile to ensure our guests are in the safest of hands.

Safe places banner

Safe Places Our centres are continuously monitored, maintained and risk-assessed by dedicated teams to ensure our places are safe and secure, always. What’s more, ongoing investment in our locations is powering breakthroughs in guest comfort and satisfaction.

Safe spaces banner

Safe Spaces We believe adventure is for everyone. We’ve developed our spaces with SEND, accessibility and inclusivity in mind, and can make further adjustments for guests’ individual needs wherever possible – our goal is to deliver enriching experiences for all.

Safeguarding banner

Safeguarding As the leader in our industry, we are committed to ensuring the safety and welfare of children, young people and adults in our care. Our teams are trained to recognise and report safeguarding concerns and aware of their responsibilities to safeguard guests.

Safe travels banner

Safe Travels Our travel partners are carefully vetted to ensure they meet our high standards and are able to demonstrate effective safety management systems – providing transport that is safe, reliable, suitable for children and adaptable to the needs of our guests.

FAQ

What’s included in the cost of the PGL trip?

Everything your school or group needs is included in the cost of the camp at Dalguise, with accommodation, activities, equipment, food and drinks all covered in the price per person!

What happens in the evenings?

The fun doesn’t stop after the day’s activities! After dinner, our evening entertainment programme will keep your class or group amused until it’s time for bed. We’ve got discos, campfires, quizzes and loads more! We want to create a schedule perfect for your group, so if you have anything in particular then just let us know and we’ll do our best to plan it into your group’s itinerary!

What should I pack for my child's overnight stay?

Here are some essential packing items for your child’s stay at Dalguise:

  • Tops/t-shirts (for daily adventure activities)
  • Trousers/leggings (for daily adventure activities)
  • Sports kit (for sports teams and sports activities)
  • Evening clothes (for discos, quizzes, evening games and more)
  • Towels
  • Toiletries

For a full list of everything we recommend you pack for your child, see our packing guide.

Does my child need waterproofs for their residential trip?

Yes! Prepare for all kinds of weather. Even if it’s forecast complete sun, packing a waterproof jacket just in case isn’t going to do any harm. You never know when the British weather might decide to throw a curveball. Waterproofs can also come in handy for our watersports and water-based activities, such as Canoeing and Raft Building.

Does my child need to bring money?

As we have a gift shop on site, your child can bring money if they’d like to buy a souvenir to take home. For the amount, we suggest £10 per child, in cash or on a pre-paid card. There’s so much to choose from at our gift shop, with caps t-shirts, teddy bears, mugs, pens, and even a uniformed group badge so your child can show everyone that they’ve been to PGL with their group!

Can I contact my child during their camp stay?

Of course! If your child brings their mobile phone, then they can contact you during free time (highlighted in our Mobile Phone Policy). Otherwise, your child can let a member of the PGL team know that they’d like to speak with you and they’ll get that sorted. If you need to contact them to pass on a message or in an emergency, then you can contact the Dalguise Centre or use any contact numbers provided by your child’s group leader.

Do you cater for special dietary requirements?

Yes, whether for religious, cultural or medical reasons, we’re able to cater for a wide range of dietary requirements. Just let us know at the time of booking so we can make sure your child or those in your group are catered for at Dalguise. We regularly provide meals for coeliacs, diabetics, guests with food allergies and vegetarians/vegans. For more information see our menu & food leader guide or food parent guide.

What safety measures are in place at Dalguise?

We have a huge emphasis on safety, starting with the recruitment of our staff and continuing through to all of our activities. As a founder member of BAPA (British Activity Providers Association) and a licence holder for activities in scope of AALA (Adventure Activities Licencing Authority) regulations, we make safety our priority.

A risk assessment has also been carried out at Dalguise, with risks being outlined and managed. The risk assessment covers the grounds of Dalguise, as well as all of the activities available at the centre.

Our Activity Instructors are experts in their area, trained and assessed both in-house and by external assessors. They’ll be there during every activity to make sure they’re completed safely and correctly.

New staff complete a comprehensive induction and job specific training followed by regular observations, feedback, reviews and assessments.

Is there parking available at Dalguise?

Yes, Dalguise has a car park available on-site.
