We take your wellbeing very seriously. Read on to find out more about how we keep you, and all the young people we work with, safe.

Amazing young activists like you drive us to great things. We owe you something in return. As a charity, it’s our responsibility to take care of you — it’s called our duty of care. That means providing a safe environment where we respect each other, and we have each other’s backs. To do that, we need to keep an eye on a lot of things.

We’re alert to harm and abuse anywhere. This includes the Bite Back team, and all our activists — whether you’re under 18 or a young adult.

You can help us out too, by:

  • Helping us create and maintain a safe, inclusive environment for everyone
  • Reporting any concerns, suspicions to one of our team. This could be about a situation involving yourself, or other young people
  • Making sure you stick to our Safeguarding Policy
