North Wales Model Engineering Society Child Protection Policy
The following is the Society’s Policy Statement on Child Protection:
· The child’s welfare is paramount.
· All children whatever their age, culture, disability, gender, racial origin, religious belief and/or sexual identity, have the right to protection from abuse.
· All suspicions and allegations of inappropriate behaviour will be taken seriously and responded to swiftly and appropriately.
· As defined in the Children Act 1989, anyone under the age of 18 years should be considered as a child.
This policy will be kept under periodic review
