The British Safety Council

The British Safety Council will support organisations to address concerns about health and safety they believe stops them engaging young people in social action, using our experience to promote a message that sensible risk management is simple, is not a barrier and actually enables volunteering. We will do this through:

  • Refresh and update our resources and materials aimed at organisations to help them appropriately manage health and safety concerns
  • Update our guidance aimed at young people to help them make appropriate decisions about risk when undertaking their own social action opportunities
  • Highlight the work of the campaign with our member organisations to act as an advocate for the role of youth social action and the part they can play in supporting activity

We’ve just pledged to the #iwill campaign recently – watch this space for updates on our progress


Quote from Charlotte Hill, CEO at Step Up To Serve
“The #iwill campaign is driven by leaders from across society who are committed to making youth social action a normal part of growing up in the UK.
We know that young people want to play an active part in improving their communities, and that in doing so, they develop their own skills for work and life.
Over 700 cross-sector organisations so far have pledged to support youth social action, and say #iwill. What will you do?”
