Safeguarding policy at SLT

SLT believes that no child, young person or adult should ever experience abuse of any kind, especially when taking part in activities at our theatre. We have a responsibility to promote the welfare of all children, young people and vulnerable adults and to keep them safe, and we’re  committed to practise in a way that protects them.

We’ve recently reviewed and updated our policies and operational practices so that there is now just one policy that  covers all activities overseen by the Buildings Preservation Trust  ( including hires), the South London Theatre (events, productions, learning and outreach activities) and the SLT Members Club. 

There are new operational guides for the Directors, Cast and Crew Members, as well as a Chaperone Policy, which you can find here. The Designated Safeguarding Officer (DSO) is Gerri McAndrew, and the Deputy Safeguarding Officer (Deputy DSO) is  Fiona Daffern. Their contact details are available in the Safeguarding documents.
