Stramash believes that it is always unacceptable for a child or young person to experience abuse of any kind and recognises its responsibility to safeguard the welfare of all children and young people, by a commitment to practice which protects them.


We recognise that:
    • The welfare of the child/young person is paramount
    • All children, regardless of age, disability, gender, racial heritage, religious belief, sexual orientation or identity, have the right to equal protection from all types of harm or abuse
    • Working in partnership with children, young people, their parents, carers and thier agencies is essential in promoting young people’s welfare.

We will seek to safeguard children and young people by:
    • Valuing them, listening to and respecting them
    • Adopting child protection guidelines through procedures and a code of conduct for staff and volunteers
    • Recruiting staff and volunteers safely, ensuring all necessary checks are made
    • Sharing information about child protection and good practice with children, parents, staff and volunteers
    • Sharing information about concerns with agencies who need to know, and involving parents and children appropriately
    • Providing effective management for staff and volunteers through supervision, support and training.


We are also committed to reviewing our policies and good practice annually.
