Newham's Young People's Charter

Terms and Conditions

Any organisation working within Newham that has an influence on the lives of children and young people aged 0-25 in the borough can sign up to the Charter.

By signing up to the Charter, you/your organisation agree to adhere to the terms and conditions detailed in this document and advocate for the Charter principles.

The sign-up form will also ask you to make two or three commitments to putting these principles into practice. This could be, for instance, by cleaning up the environment around your local business or organising community days with children in local schools.

Where possible, the Council may support you to fulfil these commitments. However, this is your responsibility and we will not formally monitor your progress in any way.

Please note that the Council does not endorse or certify any organisation that signs up to the Charter. This is not a certification scheme; rather, you are agreeing to make a commitment to young people in the borough.

After signing up, the Council will provide you with some guidance on how you might want to put the Charter into practice.

The Council will also provide you with some graphics which you are encouraged to display on your webpage, billboards, newsletters or social media to help raise awareness of the Charter. Please do not modify these graphics in any way.

Only organisations that have signed up to the Charter are entitled to use these graphics. Displaying the graphics does not mean that the Council endorses your organisation.

By signing up to the Charter you are giving the Council permission to display the name of your organisation on the Council’s website.

If you fail to observe any of the Charter’s principles, for instance by endangering the safety of a young person or failing to protect their privacy, or do anything to harm the reputation of the Council and/or the Charter, the Council reserves the right to withdraw your signature immediately at its sole discretion and you will be required to remove any signage from your business (either online and/or at your physical premises) that indicates you as a signatory to this Charter.

Thank you once again for signing up to the Young People’s Charter!
