Organisations working with children and young people need to have child protection policies and guidance in place. This is the most effective way of ensuring that children and young people involved with your organisation are safe while in your care.
A Child Protection Policy should be adopted by all organisations working with children and young people. This Policy should outline definitions of child abuse; how to recognise abuse and how to respond to concerns about abuse.
Every organisation should have a nominated Child Protection Officer who deals with any child protection issues which may arise. The Child Protection Officer should ensure that staff are aware of the organisation’s Child Protection Policy and that they are fully trained on child protection matters.
The child’s welfare is the paramount concern and child protection is everyone’s responsibility. This means that all organisations working with children and young people need to develop the relevant policies in this area.
