Many ISM members will have frequent contact with children in the course of their professional activities. The ISM acknowledges that it has a responsibility to promote best practice and the highest standards of conduct among its members and staff in relation to the safety of children. It also recognises that good safeguarding and child protection policies and procedures are also of benefit to ISM members, as they can help protect them from misunderstandings or erroneous allegations.
The ISM is committed to practices which protect children from harm.
