Safeguarding at Mission Gallery


Mission Gallery recognises that working with children and young people is a privilege that brings with it a responsibility to keep them safe. Mission Gallery is committed to ensuring that children involved in the work of the gallery and related projects are safeguarded and their rights protected at all times. Therefore, for all staff members, the safety and welfare of children and young people are of paramount consideration.

Children and young people should never experience abuse of any kind. We have a responsibility to promote the welfare of all children and young people, to keep them safe and to work in ways that protect them. We recognise that the welfare of the child is paramount and all children have the right to equal protection from all types of harm or abuse. Some children are additionally vulnerable because of the impact of previous experiences, their level of dependency, communication needs or other issues. Working in partnership with children, young people, their parents, carers and other agencies are essential in promoting young people’s welfare.
