Restless Development is the youth led-development agency and our mission is to place young people at the forefront of change and development. Our strength comes from being led by young people and young professionals, from the boardroom right through to the field. We have been working hard since 1985 and over the past 30 years, our programmes have reached over 7 million young people directly and indirectly.

At Restless Development, we take safeguarding very seriously and are committed to preventing harm to children, young people and vulnerable adults, and promoting their health, well-being and human rights.
We have robust measures in place to ensure high standards of safeguarding across our organisation and activities. We work hard to prevent issues from arising using our safeguarding policy, our code of conduct, our Whistleblowing Policy (Section 15 in Employee Handbook), and our robust recruitment systems for staff and volunteers.
Our staff are provided training in our safeguarding policy so that they can prevent, recognise, respond, record and report any matters which may cause harm to children, young people or vulnerable adults. We have lead safeguarding officers who are part of a safeguarding team made up of staff and trustees.
Our organisational culture prioritises safeguarding, protects those who come forward, and all cases are handled sensitively in line with our thorough policies. We are guided by our values and ensure we work to the highest moral and ethical standards. We have an award winning approach to dynamic accountability and transparency, and our model of change is delivered by the very people that we serve: communities and young people.
