Child Welfare and the Travel Industry

Global Good Practice Guidelines

The Child Welfare and the Travel Industry: Global Good Practice Guidelines have been developed to provide a common understanding of child welfare issues throughout the travel industry and to provide all travel businesses with guidance to prevent all forms of exploitation and abuse of children that could be related to travellers and the tourism industry. These guidelines are intended to assist travel companies in reinforcing and implementing good practices in child welfare both within and outside your business, to ensure that you are not only protecting children at all interaction points, but also protecting your staff and reputation. They will enable your business to respond in an appropriate and timely way to any child protection issue that may arise and will provide outcomes that will always be in the best interests of the child. In short, they will enable you to do good business.
