The Noor Orphans Fund Child Protection Policy is based on the principles of the UN convention on the Rights of the Child. The Noor Orphans Fund believes that NGOs working with vulnerable children have a duty to protect this already vulnerable group from mistreatment and exploitation from within organisations that ostensibly exist for their benefit.
As a condition for working with the Noor Orphans Fund, all trustees, employees, volunteers and researchers are required to undergo the following:
- Satisfactory clearance through a police check conducted by the Criminal Records Bureau.
- Both acceptance of and commitment to our Child Protection Policy and our code of conduct for working with children.
- The signing of a personal declaration stating any criminal convictions, including spent convictions.
- The providing of the names and contact information of two character references they have known for no less than two years, excluding family members.
