We aim to operate in ways where children, young people and adults can participate in programmes of work, research activities and engagement opportunities safely and meaningfully.
#BeeWell seeks to co-create an environment where young people’s wellbeing is everybody’s business.
We want children and young people to be able to enjoy programmes provided through the work of #BeeWell and partnership agencies and/or community voluntary sector organisations that we collaborate with.
Our child protection and safeguarding policy and procedures apply to all #BeeWell activities. All adults who come into contact with children and young people in their work have a duty of care to safeguard and promote their welfare.
We understand safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children to mean:
Protecting children from maltreatment
Preventing impairment of children’s health or development
Ensuring that children are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care
Taking action to enable all children to have the best life chances.
We achieve a culture of safeguarding for all staff and young people through the following principles:
Ensuring a holistic youth centred, approach
Co-production with young people; listening to and understanding their needs
A skilled, supported and confident workforce
Leadership; senior staff and board members adopting a whole organisation approach
Partnership and influence; seeking funding, regulatory, government and academic support, and effective procedural collaboration.
