The British Council is the United Kingdom’s international organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities. In our work we meet many children and adults who are potentially at risk for a variety of reasons. We aim to create a safe environment in which no child or adult will experience harm or exploitation during their contact with us. We will, where reasonably practicable, both follow relevant UK and International laws and standards, as well as ensuring local legal compliance.
