Informing, educating and entertaining young audiences is right at the heart of the BBC's remit as a public service broadcaster.
To achieve this we work directly with children and young people as contributors to content, actors or performers, spectators at shows and events, and visitors to our buildings.
Everyone who directly interacts with children on behalf of the BBC must comply with our Child Protection Policy, Code of Conduct and Guide to Working with Children at the BBC.
These documents support our staff, freelancers and contractors in putting into practice the BBC’s commitment to safeguarding the welfare of under-18s.
Child Protection Policy
This policy supports staff in putting into practice the BBC's commitment to safeguarding the welfare of children and young people under the age of 18.
Consent Document Templates
Informed consent from the child and an individual or organisation with parental responsibility for the child should always be obtained in advance of working with children in any capacity.
All children who are under official school leaving age, and who perform in BBC programmes need to be licensed unless certain exceptions apply.
