Bristol Refugee Rights Policies on Safeguarding of Children, Young People and Vulnerable Adults

Bristol Refugee Rights (BRR) is committed to safeguarding all the children, young people and vulnerable adults that we come into contact with.  BRR considers that safeguarding the welfare of child and young people is the paramount consideration in every situation and all staff, trustees and volunteers are expected to share this commitment.  It is the duty of all those working with and for BRR to ensure that they have appropriate procedures to safeguard the wellbeing of children, young people and vulnerable adults and protect them from abuse.

Bristol Refugee Rights operates Safeguarding Policies for the purpose of protecting Children, Young People and Vulnerable Adults.  In accordance with these policies, and with our recruitment policy, we practice “Safer Recruitment”. All staff members are required to undergo Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service DBS checks.  Enhanced DBS checks are also required for all Trustees and are for some volunteers depending on the volunteer role.

All staff, volunteers and trustees are required to undergo regular training on child protection and safeguarding.  We are also vigilant to prevent abusers gaining opportunities – as staff, volunteers, trustees or visitors – to access those whom we regard as vulnerable, whether or not they come under any formal definition of vulnerability.
