We achieve this through compliance with UK child protection laws and relevant laws in each of the countries we operate in, as well as by adherence to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the child (UNCRC) 1989.

This policy is mandatory for all British Council staff worldwide. This includes anyone who works for the British Council, either in a paid or unpaid, full or part time capacity. This includes directly employed staff, trustees, contractors, agency staff, consultants, volunteers, interns and anyone working on behalf of the British Council.



We take diversity into account when developing and delivering processes and functions, consider it as part of policy decisions and build it into the planning of programmes and projects. We have a variety of tools that support us to do this. All British Council staff around the world undertake equality, diversity and inclusion training and the products we develop undergo monitoring to ensure neutrality and usage from all groups of the population.
