We want to use our power as artists and theatre makers to both prevent and support safeguarding issues for children, young people and adults at risk.
The examples listed in this Safeguarding Risk Register and assessment are provided to assist staff in undertaking their event or activity risk assessment. The list and considerations are not intended to be exhausted. It is the responsibility of each manager or lead to ensure, as far as possible, that any other risks and procedures that are relevant to its own particular circumstances are identified and specified in the written risk assessment and that adequate procedures are in place to address all risks identified.
We are committed to:
QUAD’s Safeguarding Policy, which outlines our approach to safeguarding and the procedures we follow in all activities conducted by QUAD, has been developed in accordance with national legislation and guidance.
QUAD recognises that our work with people in a variety of settings will bring us into contact with both adults at risk, young people and children. As such, we are in a position of trust and our responsibilities to them and the organisation must be taken seriously. It is important to recognise how our own attitudes and behaviour can impact on our participants.
We recognise the duty to protect the rights of children, young people and adults at risk and to comply with the principles enshrined in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (1990), the Children Act (1989) and other relevant legislation. We acknowledge that the circumstances within which we are operating can be complex, volatile and changeable, and our approach to safeguarding is designed to be flexible and responsive.
QUAD is a registered charity.
