Child Protection

ChildAid actively promotes and enhances the protection, safety and welfare of children and young people from abuse and will make appropriate responses to any allegation or suspicion of abuse.

ChildAid seeks to ensure that those benefiting from the charity are not harmed in any way through contact with our representatives. We will accordingly take all reasonable steps within our power to ensure that this does not happen.

All children without exception regardless of special needs, age, gender, language, ethnic or racial origin, colour, sexual identity, religious beliefs, political or other opinions, cultural or socio-economical factors, birth or other status have at all times and in all situations the right to be completely secure from the fear or reality of abuse. The welfare of children is paramount. As stated by the UNCRC in all actions concerning children the best interests of the child shall be a primary consideration.

We regularly train our partners in the territories on current issues concerning child protection based upon UK practices and procedures.
