Safeguarding policies - Refugee Council

Safeguarding policies

The Refugee Council is committed to protecting all the children, young people and vulnerable adults that use our services. We believe that everyone working and volunteering for the Refugee Council has a responsibility to promote the welfare of all children and young people, to keep them safe and to practise in a way that prioritises their protection.

We will make sure that all children and young people, and vulnerable adults have the same protection regardless of refugee status, age, disability, gender reassignment, race, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation.

We recognise the additional needs of children and vulnerable adults with refugee or asylum status, minority ethnic groups and disabilities and the barriers they may face, especially around communication.
