It's likely that once you been through a risk assessment process you'll see a need to have comprehensive consent and information forms. Obtaining relevant medical information, emergency contacts, consent for photographs/video are good practice for all participants, both young people and volunteers. A standard yearly membership/consent form is likely to be sufficient for most activities within the club. Residentials, trips away and specific activities will require separate consent and information forms.

It's also important to think about where you store the information forms and who has access to them.

You may have a confidentiality policy that outlines this, so you need to ensure that the procedures are carried out.
