Child Protection


All pictures of people under the age of 18 appear only with consent from their parent(s) / guardian(s).

Christian names may be used on the site, but names and photo's of under 18 year olds will never be put together.

Some photos may be "stock photos". This means that they are either photos in the public domain (i.e. already published) or those that are archived in the webmaster's photo or graphic archive.

All Boys' Brigade groups (Companies) in the UK follow Child Protection guidelines and rules set by the Boys' Brigade Headquarters (viewable here). In addition, each Church should have additional guidelines and rules as well as a Child Protection Officer who will take responsibility in the event of a Child Protection issue arising.

Adequate Child Protection is essential and we recommend that you ask a BB leader for more details of your Churches' Child Protection procedures.

The best advice for children using the internet is to ensure that you never give out personal detail, such as your full name, address, telephone number, school, etc.
If you are a child or young person and you receive an email or meet someone on line that you are at all concerned about, it is ESSENTIAL that you tell a parent, guardian, teacher or a responsible grown up.

For more information about safety on the internet, we suggest that you visit the CBBC's guide to safe surfing by clicking here.
