Introduction

British Guardianship's policies contain the safeguarding policy which is obligatory for all members of British Guardianship to read and abide by. We also recommend that all parents and students to read and understand these policies.

British Guardianship recognises its responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of children within the legal framework of the Children Acts 1989 and 2004.We are aware that many children and young people are the victims of different kinds of abuse and that they can be subjected to social factors that have an adverse impact upon their lives. We aim to create a safe environment within which children and young people can thrive and adults can work with the security of clear guidance.

What is Child Protection and Safeguarding?

"Child Protection" is a part of safeguarding and promoting welfare to protect specific children, who are suffering or are at risk of suffering significant harm. ”Safeguarding” is the protection of children from maltreatment, preventing the impairment of children’s health/development and ensuring that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care.
