The Ringing World Safeguarding Policy
As the official journal of the Central Council of Church Bell Ringers, The Ringing World seeks to support and uphold good practice regarding the protection of children and vulnerable adults. The journal will disseminate information on such good practice and any changes in related legal requirements.
The journal will not knowingly publish material which could be detrimental to the interests of vulnerable persons and will abide by the normal media conventions and recommendations of the Independent Press Standards Organisation (IPSO). No material will be published which is restricted due to being the subject of legal proceedings or resulting judgements.
Where material is published that specifically relates to youth activities, then accompanying photographs and names will only be published with the general consent of the parents or guardians of any minors involved. Such consent will be deemed to cover the use of the material on the The Ringing World website but not its transmission to or use by other persons or sites.
