A child Protection Policy is a set of guidelines and procedures designed to ensure the safety and well-being of children who participate in an organization's activities. It outlines specific measures that the organization will take to prevent child abuse or neglect, including screening and training of staff and volunteers, reporting of suspected incidents of abuse and establishment of a code of conduct for all individuals who interact with children. The policy also lays out the steps that will be taken to investigate and respond to any allegations of child abuse or neglect. The primary goal of a child protection policy is to create a safe and secure environment for children and to promote their health, welfare, and development.
