Harm & Offence


Section 8: Harm and Offence of the Editorial Guidelines.

We balance our right to publish innovative and challenging content appropriate to each of our services with our responsibility to protect the vulnerable.

When we publish challenging material which risks offending some of our audience we must always be able to demonstrate a clear editorial purpose.

We must be sensitive to audience expectations, particularly in relation to the protection of children, as well as clearly signposting the material.
