Safeguarding Vulnerable People

We are committed to ensuring the safety and welfare of children and vulnerable adults involved in any of our activities. Our commitment applies to all acting on our behalf, i.e., employees, contractors, volunteers, supporters, patient, donors and visitors who may come into contact with vulnerable individuals or groups, whether on or away from our premises. The wellbeing and safety of vulnerable groups can suffer as a consequence of accident or abuse. While accidents relate mainly to physical injury, abuse may be online, verbal, emotional, physical or sexual in nature or arise from neglect. Our duty of care extends to safeguarding in respect of both, accident and abuse.

Safeguarding is about being responsible and accountable for our actions, being fair and treating everyone with respect and dignity. If you have any concerns regarding the welfare of any individual whom you come into contact during your time with us then get in touch with one of our representatives or call the safeguarding line on 0300 3047 677.
