StreetGames operates in a child and young person centred approach.  It is the aim of the organisation to deliver its activities and programmes with the welfare and safety of all children and young people at the centre of all design and delivery.

StreetGames has a legal and moral responsibility to implement procedures that provide a duty of care of all children and young people and to safeguard their wellbeing and protect them from abuse or poor practice on any grounds.

StreetGames safeguarding policy applies to all staff and volunteers employed directly by StreetGames as well as those representing StreetGames as contractors, on a full or part-time basis. 

StreetGames’s Safeguarding and Protecting Children policy is guided by the following principles:

    • The welfare and safety of children and young people (under 18 years of age) is the primary concern.
    • StreetGames aims to ensure that regardless of age, gender, religion or beliefs, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation or socio-economic background, all children:
        1. Have a positive and enjoyable experience of sport in a safe and child centred environment
        2. Are safe and protected from any harm whilst participating in a sporting or other StreetGames activity
      • StreetGames acknowledges that some children, including disabled children and young people or those from ethnic minority communities, can be particularly vulnerable and we accept the responsibility to take reasonable and appropriate steps to ensure their welfare. It is the responsibility of the child protection experts to determine whether the safety and welfare of a child or young person is at risk, but it is everyone’s responsibility to report any concerns.

    The safeguarding expectations of any organisation holding StreetMark are explained in the guidance document for StreetMark and contained within the StreetMark pages of the StreetGames website.

    StreetGames safeguarding policy and its supporting appendices can be found in the polices section of the website.
