Our Policies Header
Guy Fox History Project Limited is a registered charity (#1119898) and a company limited by guarantee (#6173274). Our policies support our educational projects and our daily operations. While many of our policies are for internal use only, we’ve posted these policies on our website in the interest of sharing our practice.

Child Protection PolicyWe believe that children can learn anything they want to, and we believe in creating an environment that manifests this belief and empowers children to realize their potential. We challenge the children in our projects; we demand their very best efforts; and we expect them to surpass their own expectations of themselves. To achieve this requires a robust Child Protection Policy and the dedication of everyone on our team to our practice. Our Child Protection Policy [click to download] outlines how we safeguard children with whom we work; we implement our policy through our Child Protection Procedures.

Education PolicyWe believe education is a life-long endeavour; we believe that a love of learning, intellectual curiosity, and resourcefulness are integral to becoming a successful citizen. We believe children want to learn; they want to achieve and to develop the skills which will empower them to become productive, proactive adults. We believe children want to improve the world around them and to take an active role in shaping that world. We believe children deserve to have their opinions heard and put into action. We believe ALL children thrive in a learning environment supported by committed professionals, using professional-quality materials, tools and resources. Our Education Policy [click to download] outlines how we put these beliefs into practice.

Equal Opportunities PolicyOur Equal Opportunities Policy [click to download] states our commitment to equal opportunities in our recruitment and treatment of our staff, volunteers, and representatives; to the removal of all barriers to participation on the basis of sex, race, age, disability or religion; and to valuing individual differences while maintaining team performance, in creating opportunities for all individuals, and in developing best practice to this end.

Data Protection PolicyAs an organisation that collects, stores and processes personal information, we are committed to complying with the Eight Principles of Data Protection. Our Data Protection Policy [click to download] outlines how our the treatment of data and information complies with the Data Protection Act of 1998.

Fundraising PolicyOur charity has never been a ‘begging bowl’ for donations; instead, we fund ourselves by developing innovative project ideas, then applying for funding to support them. Our approach to fundraising is simple: why would we beg for funding that we have the creativity, energy and motivation to earn? We are committed to conducting all of our fundraising activities in a lawful and responsible manner which is consistent with our ethos and charitable objectives. Our Fundraising Policy [click to download] sets out the rules and principles we have set for ourselves to ensure that we abide by this commitment.
