Keeping Children Safe

Child Safeguarding Policy

Right To Play has a fundamental duty of care towards children and are committed to our responsibilities to keep children safe  while engaged in our programs. We  believe that children have the right to be protected from abuse (including physical, sexual, emotional and intellectual), discrimination, exploitation, and manipulation as set out in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC).

Right To Play’s Child Safeguarding Policy is a commitment and a tool to support us to be a child safe organization where our staff and volunteers are skilled, confident, competent and supported in meeting their child protection responsibilities through clear policy, procedures and good practice and where children are respected, protected, empowered and active in their own protection. 

You can find a summary of our Child Safeguarding Policy ​here.

You can order our Child Protection Implementation Guidebook, which supports Right To Play staff to put the policy into practice, here.

If you have any questions or feedback please contact our Child Protection Officer, Laura Wright at lwright@righttoplay.com.


Help us keep children safe! 

Photos used on the website portray children with dignity, only happy healthy children who are expressing joy are taken. If you see a photo or video on our website that depicts children without dignity, respect or regard for their privacy, please email Laura Wright.


Children’s Names and Consent

We protect children’s identity of children by using only their first name or replacing it entirely. We ask children and their parents/caregivers for their informed consent before posting their pictures and stories on our website.
If you are concerned that a child could be identified or contacted based on information that is on our website, please email Laura Wright.​​​
