When it comes to taking photos and videos at events, it is important to get permission to use people’s images for anything that will be made public. In the case of asylum seekers in particular it can be important for their case to not appear publicly, and of course taking pictures of children is a sensitive issue.
We recommend at any events where you will be taking photos or making videos to make this very clear to attendees, and you can make posters asking people to come and find you if they wish not to be pictured.
You can also create stickers for attendees who do not wish to be pictured – here is one design you might like to use
Here are two general consent forms for photos / video (these may need editing in line with GDPR and your Data Protection policy):
