Code of Conduct and Online Safety Guidance.
British Blind Sport Online Safety Guidance
The guidance provides information on how our organisation uses the internet and social media, and the procedures for doing so. It also outlines how we expect the staff who work for us, and the children and adults who are members and service users of our organisation, to behave online. As an organisation, we commit to implementing these procedures and addressing any concerns quickly and within these guidelines.
Code of Conduct
The code aims to make sure that everyone that takes part in a BBS activity knows what is expected of them and feels safe, respected and valued. We will ensure that everyone taking part has seen, understood and agreed to follow the code and that they understand the consequences of inappropriate behaviour. We expect people who take part in our activities to display appropriate behaviour at all times. This includes behaviour that takes place outside our organisation and behaviour that takes place on line.
