NWMF SAFEGUARDING CHILDREN, YOUNG PEOPLE AND VULNERABLE ADULTS PROTOCOL;
What is Safeguarding?
Everyone who uses our services and facilities, or who participates in our activities has a right to do so in an environment free from potential abuse and harm. Safeguarding is a term we use to describe all of the measures we take as an organisation to protect the health, safety and wellbeing of individuals, especially children and adults at risk.
- A child is anyone aged under 18 years of age.
- An adult at risk is anyone aged 18 years or over who could be at risk of harm due to their personal or environmental circumstances.
For further information, or to report a concern or incident please contact the Safeguarding team:
