We are commited to safeguarding children and vulnerable adults and here you will find the current Child Safeguarding policy and our new Adult Safeguarding policy that reflects the changes from the Care Act 2014 and replaces the ‘No secrets’ Guidance 2000.
Safeguarding is ‘everybody’s business’ and you will find guidance on preventing, identifying and reporting if you suspect a child or vulnerable adult is at risk or is suffering from neglect or abuse. You can report this to specifically trained Safeguarding Link Officers on 01246 242424 or if it is out of normal office hours call Starting Point on 01629 533190 or 08456 058 058. (24 hours a day 7 days a week).
