Protection of Young People Involved in IARU Region 1 Youth Activities

IARU Region 1 has a rapidly developing youth programme to encourage the recruitment, growth and development of young people in Amateur Radio.


Modern standards require proper safeguarding of young people. The “IARU Region 1 Child Protection Policy” has therefore been implemented, which sets out the responsibilities of all those who are in a supervisory role during such IARU events.

This Policy is required reading for all those planning Region 1 events involving young people. Event organisers and team leaders are required to sign to acknowledge that they have read and understood the requirements of the policy.

By taking these steps, IARU Region 1 seeks to ensure that all young people can enjoy the range of events organised by the Region in a safe and secure environment.
