We’re committed to creating an environment that’s safe, inclusive and supportive.
As an organisation providing services for vulnerable children and young people, we aim to keep everyone we work with safe by adopting the highest possible standards and taking all the reasonable steps to protect them from harm.
Putting children and young people’s needs first at all times.
Children and young people have the right to say what they think about anything which affects them. We hope to encourage them to be confident and assertive and to develop trusting and respectful relationships with our staff so that they know they will be listened to and believed. Our hope is to ensure a reliable and effective response in the event of any concern for a children and young people’s welfare and to support each child and family.
It is everyone’s responsibility in a community to look after its children and young adults.
Because we recognise the responsibilities of all employee and partners to safeguard children and young people, all our staff and volunteers are informed of and thoroughly versed in the procedures and guidance in our safeguarding and child protection policy and understand its importance in keeping everyone safe. This policy is updated annually and informed by the latest statutory Safeguarding guidance.
