RED NOSES brings humour and laughter to people in need of joy to foster the overall well-being of our beneficiaries. We seek to create safe environments for children and vulnerable adults to enjoy the highest quality and professional art of clowning in all our programmes and countries we work in.

RED NOSES recognises the utmost importance of keeping children and vulnerable adults safe and ensuring that they are protected from maltreatment or anything that is detrimental to their health and development, within our organisation as well as with our partners. We do not tolerate any form of child abuse, exploitation, neglect or violation of a child’s and vulnerable person’s privacy and rights.

Therefore, RED NOSES has introduced a streamlined Children and Vulnerable Persons Safeguarding (CVPS) Policy to minimise the risk of violence and abuse; all employees, freelancers, partners and collaborators must obey this policy and fully commit to report any incident of potential abuse immediately.

Our CVPS Policy focuses on:

  • Awareness: strengthen the capacities of RED NOSES artists and staff members to prevent abuse and recognise signs of it
  • Prevention: teach tools and mechanisms to prevent abuse
  • Reporting: any reported safeguarding concern is carefully and responsibly assessed by a trained Safeguarding Team
  • Responding: mechanisms to take concrete actions and decisions to respond to the results of the assessment.
