As an organization defending the human rights of children, young people and adults with intellectual disabilities, Inclusion Europe is committed to and encourages respect for human rights and dignity. Inclusion Europe believes that every child who participates in Inclusion Europe activities has the right to enjoy a safe environment and be protected from harm. In line with the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, which states that all children have a right to protection, Inclusion Europe believes that it has a duty of care and obligation to protect those children for whom we are given responsibility.
We believe that the welfare of children is the highest priority and that it is the responsibility of everyone in Inclusion Europe to ensure that they are protected. This policy sets out Inclusion Europe’s commitment to Child Protection and aims to promote good practice.
