Statement of Commitment to Child Safety and Protection

BWFCC is committed to safety and wellbeing of all children and young people.
BWFCC has zero tolerance for child abuse.
BWFCC is committed to providing a child safe environment where children and young people are safe and feel safe, and their voices are heard about decisions that affect their lives.
All allegations and safety concerns will be treated very seriously and consistently. We have legal and moral obligations to contact authorities when we are worried about a child’s safety, which we follow rigorously.
Every person involved in BWFCC has a responsibility to understand the important and specific role they play individually and collectively to ensure that the wellbeing and safety of all children and young people is at the forefront of all they do and every decision they make.
BWFCC is committed to regularly training and educating our staff and volunteers on child abuse risks and all staff undertake Mandatory Reporting training.
