Adopted at the CPS Committee Meeting on Wednesday 13 th August 2008 Signed __________________________ (Sarah Yeoman)

 

BEHAVIOUR STATEMENT

 

1. Always

  • Ensure that all volunteers and members at your club are aware of these guidelines

  • Treat everyone with respect.

  • Provide an example you wish others to follow.

  • Ensure that another adult (ideally of a different gender) is present when you are in the company of young people.

  • Respect persons’ right to privacy.

  • Encourage young people and adults to feel comfortable and caring enough to point out attitudes and behaviour they do not like.

  • Remember someone might misinterpret your actions and your comments no matter how well intentioned.

  • Recognise that caution is required particularly in sensitive moments such as when dealing with bullying, bereavement, grief or abuse.

  • Be aware of the possible implications of physical contact with young people.

  • Contact your local interagency child protection officer whenever in doubt.

 

2. Never

  • …permit abusive youth peer activities (e.g. initiation ceremonies, ridiculing, bullying)

  • …jump to conclusions.

  • …allow yourself to be drawn into any inappropriate attention seeking behaviour by young people (e.g. tantrums, crushes)

  • …exaggerate or trivialise child abuse issues.

  • …show favouritism to any individual.

  • …make suggestive remarks or gestures.

  • …rely upon your good name to protect you.

  • …believe “it could never happen to me,” either when dealing with abuse or being accused of committing abuse. What to do if One to One Contact is unavoidable:

  • Make sure it is for as short time as possible.

  • Ensure you are accessible to others.

  • Tell someone else where you are going, what you are doing and why.

  • Try to move with the child to areas where there are more people.

  • Try to avoid unnecessary physical contact especially if it may be misconstrued by the child or other people.

Action Statement

  • If you suspect or are told that a young person is being abused.

    • You must always refer – you must never investigate.

    • Write down the facts, as you know them.

    • Ensure that the young person is given the opportunity to talk to you, or an independent person.

    • Listen to the young person without interruption, and do not ask questions about what you may suspect. • Do not approach a suspected abuser yourself.

    • Provide support as appropriate.

    • Accept at face value what the young person says.

    • Do not pass judgement on what is said, but to try to alleviate any fears or guilt which the young person may have.

    • Make it clear that you can offer support, and that you MUST pass on the information.

  • If you receive an allegation of child abuse by an adult

    • Contact your local interagency child protection officer via one of the Club’s designated contacts.

    • Record the nature of the allegation in detail.

    • Do not try to sort it out yourself.

In case of an emergency please contact: one of the following responsible people:

  • Will Stead, President - 07702 784895 

  • Gordon Jenkins, Treasurer & Past President - 01257 268965
