Guiding principle


Article 19 of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child states that Governments should ‘take all appropriate legislative, administrative, social and educational measures to protect the child from all forms of physical or mental violence, injury or abuse, neglect of negligent treatment, maltreatment or exploitation, including sexual abuse, while in the care of parent, legal guardian or any other person who has the care of the child’.


The Safeguarding Children Report 2008 states that ‘Agencies that work with children and young people have a wider role than simply protecting them from neglect and abuse, this includes keeping them safe from accidents, crime, bullying and actively promoting their welfare in a health and safety environment’.




MOTIV8 believes that the safety and wellbeing of children and young people is of paramount importance, and that all children without exception have the right to protection and to be treated with respect and dignity.  All staff, including volunteers, trustees and student placements have a responsibility to report any concerns, and all suspicions and allegations of abuse will be taken seriously and responded to swiftly and appropriately.
