East Dunbartonshire Council is able to provide a notice board service for the placing of private listings, it must be stressed that it is the responsibility of the individual to satisfy themselves as to the suitability of the services being accessed.

It is for the individual to ensure that appropriate standards are met. Where children are involved, the parent or guardian must consider child protection issues where children may be in classes, clubs, events or having individual or group tuition.

It is for the parent or guardian to ensure the child’s safety by checking that any parties offering services have had the appropriate background and criminal record checks and are suitably qualified.

For the avoidance of doubt, please be aware that East Dunbartonshire Council does not investigate the backgrounds of those who place listings or verify the validity of the contents of the listings.

Consequently, the Council does not endorse any service or activity being offered privately or the parties offering them. The aim of East Dunbartonshire Council in facilitating the placement of private listings is to create awareness only for customers and is not a guarantee as to the quality or suitability of what is being publicised.
