As a charity that is committed to working with integrity and being open and transparent with staff, volunteers, partners and supporters, we have published a selection of our key policies. These outline the approach we take as an organisation to issues from safeguarding to equality, diversity & inclusion and whistle blowing.

Our privacy policy is here and our website terms & conditions are here.


The date that each policy was reviewed is included on each document.

These policies were written by the BSA for its own purposes and with its own programmes, activities and working environment in mind. We are supportive of best practice sharing and collaborative working with other organisations, and so hope that the information included is helpful to others. However, we do not take any responsibility for the contents (and the suitability thereof) if duplicated or disseminated for use outside of our organisation.
