Youth work organisations should give particular consideration to road transport safety. Travelling in various means of transport is likely to be one of the higher risk activities involved in the delivery of youth work services. This guidance focuses upon private hire and self-drive road transport and not other methods such as rail, air or ferry
A health and safety policy provides a youth work organisation the opportunity to detail what it will do to manage health and safety, and how it will make youth programmes safe. As such, it will form a core part of an organisation’s overall safety management system and sets out the organisation’s approach to keeping young people, workers and the public safe during its activity.
This document outlines Safeguarding policy and procedures for the protection of children and young people at risk.
