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.
