Safe Guarding Policy
Archie's Allergies is committed to safeguarding the health and wellbeing of every person in our community, of every age. It is the responsibility of each one of us to prevent the physical, sexual, emotional abuse or neglect of every member of our community, and particularly the abuse of those most vulnerable among us, including children and young people.
Some children and adults have an increased risk of abuse, and additional barriers can exist for some children and adults with respect to recognising or disclosing it. We recognise everyone’s diverse circumstances, we ensure that all children and adults have the same protection, regardless of any barriers they may face.
All those who work or volunteer with Archie's Allergies will be made aware of this policy and of what to do if they have any concerns. There is guidance for those responding to concerns so that they are properly dealt with, including sharing information about concerns with agencies that need to know and involve children, young people and families appropriately.
It is our policy that no-one shall work specifically with children and young people who might constitute a risk to their wellbeing.
Use Of Images
Archie's Allergies recognises the need to ensure the welfare and safety of all children. This policy should be read in conjunction with our safeguarding policy.
We may, from time to time, wish to record the charity’s work/projects involving children. Such images may be used for fundraising purposes and for general publicity purposes including in the charity’s printed publications, presentations, on its website and in the media.
We will not permit photographs, video or other images of children and young people to be taken without the consent of their parents/carers and the child.
