CHILD PROTECTION POLICY
We believe that:
children and young people should never experience abuse of any kind;
we have a responsibility to promote the welfare of all children and young people, to keep them safe and to practice in a way that protects them.
We recognize that:
the welfare of children is paramount in all the work we do and in all the decisions we take;
all children, regardless of age, disability, gender reassignment, race, religion or belief, sex, or sexual orientation have an equal right to protection from all types of harm or abuse;
some children are additionally vulnerable because of the impact of previous experiences, their level of dependency, communication needs or other issues;
working in partnership with children, young people, their parents, carers and other agencies is essential in promoting young people’s welfare.
Anyone collaborating with Betterness Manifesto and working with children is obliged to carry out a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check. We are very happy to provide access to our clients.
