Child protection policy
The British Council is committed to looking after all the children. We believe that all children have the potential and that every child in the world is important. We also affirm the right of children to be protected from all forms of abuse as stipulated in Article 19 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC (1989)). Therefore, protecting children means for us taking all possible measures during planning activities and practicing our actions to protect children from abuse and ensuring that the interests of the child are placed at the top of our priorities when making decisions. We believe in providing a safe environment for children that takes into account the careful and accurate selection of employees, the development of childcare policies and clear administrative guidelines and regulations that will strengthen and implement the child protection policy of the British Council.
