The YPA provides information and support to to all parties employing and working with children and young people within the entertainment industry. We believe it is important to create a common framework implementing industry best practice throughout invested parties.
To achieve this we need to work together.
Currently there are many different parties that deal with a child throughout the casting to post production process but not one entity that follows there progress, protection and safeguarding throughout. We believe at the YPA this is paramount to protect our children and young people (0-18).
Our aim is to create a industry wide standard for working with children. One place where the child is monitored throughout each job they work, ensuring safe surroundings, consistent working practice and a fully qualified team taking care of each child’s individual welfare whilst working.
