Safeguarding your children There is nothing more important to most parents than keeping their children happy and safe. Sadly, safeguarding issues involving children frequently dominate news headlines and fill the hearts of every reasonable person with sorrow, whether you are a parent or not. Did you know that the Criminal records Bureau (CRB) and the Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA) have merged to become the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS)? We do….because all of our associate photographers have what are now known as a DBS check (formerly a CRB check), before they join us. Most responsible organisations working closely with children and families will be doing the same. Our professional photographers view the opportunity to work closely with your families, your babies and your children, as a huge privilege. When you choose a Cherubs Partner, that photographer is only too aware that you are giving them permission to enter your family circle … and record images of those who are most precious to you. You need to be assured that our professionals will safely supervise your family photo shoot, operating with due care and attention to the specific needs of each and every one of your children. Nothing will ever be rushed and we will take all the time that’s needed to capture the perfect professional photograph. It’s important to us that we run an organisation with policies and procedures in place for safeguarding the children that we work with. And we know that’s important to you too, which is why we want to tell you about it! We are a responsible business which takes very great pride in the work of our professional photographers. We want to ensure that the service we offer you and your family is as safe as it possibly can be… and with DBS checks in place we are confident that it really, really is.
