Safeguarding children is our priority

Safeguarding children is our priority and we work closely with industry leading experts, including the DBS and the NSPCC, to ensure that our child safeguarding practises are over and above those required by law. All of our properties are regularly inspected for their physical safety and security, whilst our dedicated team of operational and activity staff undergo thorough training and screening programmes.

Groups staying with us will always be given dedicated rooms with private leader rooms, and our hostels may also be available for sole use. Our advisors will be happy to talk through any individual requirements.

If you have any specific or individual concerns about the safety of young people, either about to stay or staying with YHA, please raise them. We will be happy to share any information we have about our policies and procedures, or specific sites.
