Blue Cabin believes that all children and young people have the right to grow up in a safe and caring environment, which includes the right to protection from all types of abuse. They have the right to expect that adults in positions of responsibility do everything possible to uphold these rights. This policy aims to ensure that all children, young people and vulnerable adults participating in activities or events run by Blue Cabin will do so safely, with respect and understanding, and be free from any form of abuse.
Blue Cabin will take all reasonable steps to protect the rights, health and well-being of children and young people who take part in any activities or events organised by the company. The exact definition of what is a reasonable level of care will be further defined in the risk assessment for an activity, and will vary according to the age of the children/young people involved, the circumstances (including length, intensity and location) of the activity or event and the extent to which it is a partnership with other agencies or schools. The additional vulnerability of some children and young people due to disability, neuro-diversity, communication needs, previous adverse experiences, exposure to discrimination, exclusion from positive opportunities by virtue of social or environmental factors will also be considered.
If any participants of Blue Cabin events have concerns about our safeguarding policy or procedures, we would encourage them to contact us to discuss this and we are committed to listening and responding accordingly.
