We want to ensure that all young people at Code Club can develop their digital skills in a fun and safe environment. Code Club is committed to following best practices when it comes to safeguarding, and we do all we can to make sure that club organisers and volunteers know how to protect themselves and the children they work with.

As part of starting a Code Club, we ask that all club organisers and volunteers obtain any necessary background check needed to work with young people in their country.

At Code Clubs in schools, volunteers should always be supervised by school staff during the sessions.

Further information about safeguarding and background checks can be found on our Working Safely with Children page.
