Bridges Beyond Boxing (“we”, “us”, “our”) is committed to providing a safe and secure environment for all children and young people participating in our program. This policy outlines our approach to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children.

1. Protection

All children have the right to protection from all forms of harm, abuse, and exploitation. We take all concerns and allegations seriously and respond appropriately to ensure the child’s safety.

2. Recruitment

We follow a thorough recruitment process, including background checks and safeguarding training, to ensure that all staff and volunteers are suitable to work with children.

3. Behavioural Code

We enforce a code of conduct that all staff, volunteers, and participants must follow. This code promotes respect, fairness, and dignity, and prohibits any form of bullying, discrimination, or abuse.

4. Training

Our staff and volunteers receive regular training to recognize signs of abuse or neglect and understand the appropriate actions to ensure child protection.

5. Reporting

We have a clear reporting process for any concerns about a child’s welfare. All concerns will be taken seriously, and confidentiality will be maintained throughout the process.

6. Partnership

We work in partnership with parents, guardians, and relevant local authorities to protect children. We share information appropriately and work together to ensure the child’s safety and welfare.

7. Review

This policy is reviewed regularly to ensure that it is up-to-date with changes in local legislation and international best practices.

We are committed to ensuring that Bridges Beyond Boxing is a safe and supportive environment where children can learn, grow, and excel.
