Safeguarding Children and Young People
At ERCSA we are continuously seeking to engage in best practice which works to prevent and minimize the risk of harm to children and adults who engage with any services run by, or in collaboration with ERCSA. We seek to ensure that all those who hold a duty of care towards children are aware of their responsibilities to respond to safety concerns that arise. We are guided by the following principles:
By working to uphold these principles and/or rights, we are seeking to recognise and demonstrate genuine respect for the inherent value, dignity, and worth of all. Through this commitment, we are also demonstrating respect for basic human rights as this is the cornerstone of developing strong communities in which every member feels safe and secure, together with a having a sense of connectedness and belonging.
