Safeguarding covers a range of activities, undertaken by all of us, to support all adults and children’s rights to be safe.

We hold the value that living a life free from harm and abuse is your fundamental human right.

We acknowledge our statutory responsibilities to promote the welfare of children and young people, and to protect adults at risk of abuse, enabling them to retain independence, well-being, dignity and choice.

This requires a ‘Think Family’ approach as children, young people, adults and their families and carers don't exist or operate in isolation.

We believe that safeguarding is everybody's business and put measures in place to protect those least able to protect themselves. Every member of our staff has an individual responsibility for the protection and safeguarding of children and adults.
