Early Help, Safeguarding and Domestic Abuse

Safeguarding is everyone's responsibility. We work closely with other agencies to promote people's welfare and protect them from harm.

Everyone working for us has a role to play in identifying concerns, sharing information and taking prompt action when issues are identified.

We have a Safeguarding Policy that provides guidance to officers for those who need our support, to protect people's health, wellbeing and human rights, and to prevent problems escalating to enable them to live free from harm, abuse or neglect.
