Child Protection and Privacy Policies

Protection of children

The Cambodian Children's CharityCambodian Children's Charity has a duty of care to safeguard all children involved in the Charity or the subject of the Charity’s activities, from harm. All children have a right to protection and the needs of disabled children and others who may be particularly vulnerable must be taken into account.

The Charity ensures the safety and protection of all children involved in the Charity or its activities through the appointment of one of the Trustees as the Charity’s Child Protection Officer and adherence to the Child Protection Policy and Guidelines adopted by the Charity.

Our Child Protection Policy and Guidelines requires that all volunteers which travel out to work on any of our projects in Cambodia must undergo Criminal Records Bureau checks in the UK or similar police clearance procedures, for volunteers from other countries.

It is one of the Charity’s main objectives that all organisations and institutions which benefit from the Charity’s funding are encouraged to adhere to best practice in all areas of the provision of their services. It is therefore the Charity’s aim to encourage all such organisations and institutions to adopt appropriate Child Protection Policies.

Privacy & Data Protection

We try to protect the privacy of our children and avoid giving too much information on individual children in our general publications. We have a clearance process for use of photos and avoid in general using the children's real names. We only use photos where we have relevant permission.

We only send mail, whether by post or electronically, to people who have indicated that they are happy to hear from us. We give everyone an opportunity to state their preferences on our use of their details and strictly respect those preferences. Please contact us if you would like to change your preferences.

Personal data that the Charity collects is not distributed, shared, rented or sold to any other companies or organisations.
