Introduction

Links International is committed to safeguarding the welfare of children, young people and adults at risk and protecting them from abuse. We believe that it is never acceptable for a child to experience abuse of any kind and that safeguarding children is everyone’s responsibility within our organisation.

This policy will help foster a safe and positive environment for children and adults at risk and provide guidance for all employees and volunteers regarding acceptable behaviours and appropriate boundaries when working with children and adults at risk.

Links International will ensure all employees and volunteers are aware of and understand this policy so that the risk of abuse of children and adults at risk is minimised.  We will ensure all volunteers and employees embarking on an overseas trip have a DBS check.  We will ensure our Links Trip Leaders clearly understand what steps to take when concerns arise regarding the safety of children and adults at risk on Links Trips.  We will immediately respond to and investigate all concerns and allegations.
