With the addition of §8a to SGB VIII, an important step for the protection of children and young people has come into force. The legislator has created a framework that now has to be filled by those responsible for each institution in child and youth welfare.
The Alter Gasometer e.V. association has now taken this step. With the creation and publication of our child protection concept, we as an institution have created the institutional standard for well-founded and networked child and youth protection. Our protection concept has 4 important pillars:
- Regular information and training for all employees
- Code of Conduct as a basic personnel requirement
- Active networking in the “Child Welfare” network of the district of Zwickau
- Prevention and information with the children and young people in the youth work of the Old Gasometer Association
The protection concept is a further step towards professionalising the protection of children and young people from violence and sexual abuse.
