Equal opportunities

Oak House is committed to being an equal opportunities organisation and to ensuring that all people we work with are treated fairly and are not subjected to unfair discrimination.

We therefore promote equality of opportunity in everything we do.

We aim to ensure that everyone we work with is offered the same opportunities regardless of their race, religion, nationality, ethnic origin, age, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, disability or any other characteristic unrelated to the performance of the job.

We seek to ensure that no one suffers as a result of discrimination, either directly or indirectly. We want to ensure that we not only observe the relevant legislation but also do whatever is necessary to provide genuine equality of opportunity.

We expect all of our team to be treated and to treat others with respect. Our aim is to provide a working environment free from harassment, intimidation, or discrimination in any form which may affect the dignity of the individual.

We further recognise that working with people from diverse backgrounds creates an organisation where creativity and valuing difference in others thrives.

Child protection

All members of the Oak House team who work with children have been through CRB enhanced disclosure checks in accordance with Part V of the police Act 1997. The Disclosure is not evidence of the identity of the Bearer.

Oak House has adopted the Save the Children child protection policy.

We believe that:

  • All child abuse involves the abuse of children’s rights.
  • All children have equal rights to protection from abuse and exploitation.
  • The situation of all children must be improved through promotion of their rights as set out in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. This includes the right to freedom from abuse and exploitation.
  • Child abuse is never acceptable
  • We have a commitment to protecting children with/ for whom we work
  • When we work through partners, they have a responsibility to meet minimum standards of protection for children in their programmes.

What we will do:

We will meet our commitment to protect children from abuse through the following means:

Awareness: we will ensure that all staff and others are aware of the problem of child abuse and the risks to children.

Prevention: we will ensure, through awareness and good practice, that staff and others minimise the risks to children.

Reporting: we will ensure that staff and others are clear what steps to take where concerns arise regarding the safety of children.

Responding: we will ensure that action is taken to support and protect children where concerns arise regarding possible abuse.

In order that the above standards of reporting and responding are met, members of Oak House will also ensure that they:

  • take seriously any concerns raised
  • take positive steps to ensure the protection of children who are the subject of any concerns
  • support children, staff or other adults who raise concerns or who are the subject of concerns
  • act appropriately and effectively in instigating or co-operating with any subsequent process of investigation
  • are guided through the child protection process by the principle of ‘best interests of the child’
  • listen to and takes seriously the views and wishes of children
  • work in partnership to ensure the protection of children.
