STC Expeditions becomes first Childsafe Certified tour operator in the UK
ChildSafe, a global movement protecting children from all forms of abuse, congratulates STC Expeditions for its achievement in being the first tour operator in the UK to be awarded Childsafe Certification.
The organisation’s flagship Certification is awarded to companies who meet stringent policy procedures regarding the welfare and treatment of children across the world.
Emmanuelle Werner from ChildSafe says: “The tourism industry plays a key role in protecting children globally. By becoming Childsafe certified STC Expeditions is at the forefront of the growing international recognition of the importance of implementing child protection within the tourism industry.
“By putting in place our Child Protection Policy and Code of Conduct in their daily business, they ensure that their services are not only child-friendly and protective, but also answering the needs of the community, parents and young people.”
Adrian Ferraro of STC Expeditions adds: “We are delighted to receive Childsafe Certification and to be the first tour operator in the UK to achieve this. It is fantastic to be working in partnership with Childsafe to ensure that all schools that book with us are adhering to international guidelines. Schools that organise trips through STC Expeditions can be rest assured that they will be travelling responsibility with an ethical approach to interacting with local people.
STC Expeditions joins hundreds of other ChildSafe alliance partners, supporters and certified businesses around the world. These are all listed on the ChildSafe website – a comprehensive resource and source of information to ensure a global approach to child protection.
