Information for parents, guardians and carers

Parents are welcome to come and look around and talk to youth workers. We have a cafe that is open to everyone.

Also see Platform Youth Workers

Platform youth hub is open access. We do NOT act in loco parentis (in place of a parent) in the way that a school does. Young people can come and go as they please.

We ask that all children and young people using Platform fill in a registration form. This can be downloaded here. The reasons we need this information are detailed on the form.

In the case of a personal emergency we will endeavour to make contact with the nominated emergency contact.

If the building has to close for any reason, young people will be expected to make their own arrangements to get home. Use of a mobile phone will be provided on request.

All our duty managers are qualified first aiders.

Safeguarding

All our staff are DBS checked on a regular basis. Youth workers also attend training provided by the Islington Safeguarding Children Board.

Our Designated Safeguarding Person is Judith Samuel who can be contacted on 07825 098689 or judith.samuel@isledon.co.uk
