Bristol Music Trust believes that the welfare of the child is paramount. All children, whatever their age, culture, disability, gender, language, racial origin, religious beliefs and/or sexual identity have the right to be safeguarded. All welfare concerns should be taken seriously and responded to swiftly and appropriately, and all staff have a responsibility to take appropriate action if they have any concerns.
As an organisation we will take every reasonable step to ensure that children are protected where our own staff are directly involved in the delivery of a music project, or when we recruit or broker relationships between musicians or arts facilitators and a third party, or when we fund an organisation for a programme of work. If an allegation occurs against a member of staff as a result of the Trust’s direct or indirect involvement, we will treat the situation with the utmost urgency.
