Statement of Safeguarding Principles

 
This statement applies to all staff, including senior managers and the board of trustees, paid staff, volunteers, agency staff, students or anyone working on behalf of Liberal Judaism, including staff and volunteers of LJY-Netzer, Liberal Judaism’s youth movement.

The purpose of the Liberal Judaism safeguarding guidance and procedures is to protect all children, young people and vulnerable persons who receive Liberal Judaism and LJY-Netzer’s services.

Liberal Judaism believes that no person should ever experience abuse of any kind. We have a responsibility to promote the welfare of all children, young people and vulnerable persons to keep them safe. We are committed to practice in a way that protects them.

We recognise that:

  • The welfare of the child/young person/vulnerable person is paramount;
  • All persons, regardless of age, disability, gender, racial heritage, religious belief, sexual orientation or identity, have the right to equal protection from all types of harm or abuse;
  • Working in partnership with children, young people, their parents, carers, vulnerable persons and other agencies is essential in promoting everybody’s welfare.

The Liberal Judaism youth movement, LJY-Netzer is a discrete part of the organisation but both Liberal Judaism and LJY Netzer have particular responsibility to ensure best practice is followed. Throughout the guidance and procedures any reference to Liberal Judaism applies directly to LJY-Netzer as a project of the organisation.

Our safeguarding guidance and procedures are to be followed by the board of trustees, paid staff, volunteers, agency staff, students or anyone working on behalf of Liberal Judaism and LJY-Netzer at all times.
