Anti Bribery Policy, approved by the Committee 11/11/2013
The NELPG is committed to providing a caring, friendly and safe environment for all of our Volunteers and contractors so they can work and learn in a relaxed and secure atmosphere. Bullying of any kind is unacceptable at the NELPG. If bullying does occur, all Volunteers should be able to tell and know that incidents will be dealt with promptly and effectively.
The NELPG has a responsibility to introduce its own Child Protection Policy. Under the Children Act 1989 we all have a responsibility for the well being of children and vulnerable persons whether or not we have parental control of children and young persons.
The NELPG recognises that alcohol and drug abuse related problems are an area of health and social concern. It also recognises that a Volunteer with such problems needs help and support from the NELPG. The Group also recognises that alcohol and drug abuse problems can have a detrimental effect on work performance and behaviour. The Group has a responsibility to its Volunteers and customers to ensure that this risk is minimised.
All users and associated personnel – whether employed or volunteer - will ensure that they work entirely within all relevant, statutory and North Yorkshire Moors Railway, Health and Safety requirements and as required by ORR and HSE regulations.

NELPG's aim is to ensure the we comply with our statutory duties under the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 (as amended by the Special Educational Needs Disability Act 2001) We aim to create a positive, inclusive ethos where issues of disability can be openly discussed with a shared commitment to respect difference and encourage good relations. This approach will be supported and backed up by the provision of disability equality/specific disability awareness training for volunteers as required.
We value the diversity brought to NELPG by individuals from a variety of racial, ethnic and national backgrounds and seek to provide a working and learning environment free from racial discrimination, harassment or victimisation.
The Committee has produced a written policy for considering applications for PTS sponsorship and payment by the Group. The ultimate aim will be to have a sufficient number of suitably qualified and able people, with PTS qualification, to support NELPG’s mainline activities. This is a link to a form to apply for NELPG sponsored PTS certification.
