We do this by:
Ensuring our staff, volunteers and regular contractors have responsibility for providing a safe environment for children, young people and adults at risk.
Providing appropriate training and supervision for staff and volunteers; including the appointment of designated officers within each of our business units.
Ensuring staff/volunteers are appropriately selected and vetted and are made aware of the policy.
Ensuring appropriate action is always taken in the event of an incident, in-line with best practice.
Providing clear guidance and a code of behaviour to staff, volunteers and regular contracts to enable them to deal with:a safeguarding issue, how to deal generally with children, young people and adults and how to deal with a safeguarding complaint.
Working in partnership with a range of stakeholders we will communicate concerns to the relevant authorities.
Concerns about safeguarding should be addressed to a member of staff who will take appropriate action.
