Due to the nature of our work and our interaction with young people, it is important that we have a safeguarding and child protection policy specific to the type of work we do, in order to ensure the best possible protection of young people.
Career Ready believes that a child or young person should never experience abuse of any kind. We have a responsibility to promote the welfare of all children and young people and keep them safe. We are committed to practise and work in a way that protects them. The purpose of this policy:
- To protect children and young people who receive Career Ready services and interventions.
- To provide staff and volunteers with the overarching principles that guide our approach to safeguarding and child protection
This policy applies to adults working in any capacity with Career Ready, including Career Ready employees, volunteers, mentors, workplace supervisors for internships and work placements. However, some parts of the policy apply expressly to particular groups. All adults working with Career Ready will be informed about this policy and where a copy can be obtained.
