Safeguarding policy for children and vulnerable adults

The British Society for Immunology is fully committed to safeguarding children and vulnerable adults from harm.

Our policy outlines the legislation, principles and values that inform the practice of staff, volunteers and other representatives who work with children or adults at risk in the course of performing duties or services on behalf of the BSI. The welfare of the child is paramount. This policy is operated in conjunction with UK safeguarding legislation and guidance including Children Act 1989 and 2004, Working Together to Safeguard Children 2018 and Care Act 2014. The policy should be read in conjunction with our 'Safeguarding procedures and processes' document. The policy was reviewed and approved by the BSI Board of Trustees in February 2020 and is due for review in February 2021.
