This policy is the Charity’s response to Prevent, part of the Government’s counter-terrorism strategy. We understand the need to safeguard our learners, and all children, young people and vulnerable adults, from harm and the risk from radicalisation of any type is no different.
We recognise our responsibility to participate in such work and to safeguard the welfare of people by committing to practice in a way which prevents and protects people from being drawn into terrorism. The Charity reserves the right to modify this policy from time to time at its discretion and in line with legislation.
This policy applies to all employees, self-employed contractors, volunteers, trustees and all other third parties who, through their involvement with the Charity work with children, young people or vulnerable adults.
