It is our core belief that all children and young adults have a right to protection and that welfare is paramount. We ensure that we have effective policies and processes in place that protect the children, young adults and communities that we work with.
Challenges Abroad recognises that as an organisation it has the responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of participants under the age of 18, and that it also needs to ensure any partnering school or college adhere to the relevant statutory and non-statutory safeguarding guidance including ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ KCSIE. You can view our Safe Guarding Policy for more information. This policy is implemented across our entire organisation.
Our policy is implemented across our entire organisation, including the FutureSense Foundation, and ensures that all children and young people with whom we work or support are protected at all times. The policy is in agreement with the United Nations Convention on the Right of the Child.
We regularly review and update our Child Protection Policy to ensure best practice and stay up to date with any new research or legislation.
All participants, volunteers and staff are required to obtain a Enhanced DBS check and sign our Code of Conduct before commencing their programme.
