A Commitment to Safeguarding
All the Trustees and Staff at Street League are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young people. We expect stakeholders, volunteers, and partners to share this commitment. We work with the National Society for the Protection of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) to ensure that consistent effective safeguarding procedures are in place to prepare our staff and to support the young people we engage.
All concerns and ‘niggles’ are recorded and reported via our internal system by staff who are trained in safeguarding practice for both online and face to face service delivery. All our regional managers and 80% of our senior management are trained as Designated Child Protection Officers (DCPO’s).
We aim to:
- Provide a safe environment for our young people to learn and progress into work.
- Identify young people who are ‘at risk’ or who are potentially ‘at risk’ and take action to mitigate this.
To achieve this, we:
- Aim to prevent unsuitable people from joining our workforce.
- Promote safe practice, underpinned by widescale training.
- Challenge any poor practice.
- Continually report and record incidents at both operational and board level.
- Take guidance on policy and procedure from NSPCC.
- Aim to work in partnership and share information with safeguarding stakeholders where appropriate and in line with GDPR.
