RSBC Safeguarding Statement

As a charity that works with families, children and young people from 0 to 25 years safeguarding is embedded in everything we do. We recognise that we have a duty of care to the children and young people we provide services for, and that we must always be vigilant to the possibility of abuse. This includes taking the necessary steps to safeguard them and promote their welfare.

When we recruit staff, volunteers and trustees we follow safer recruitment processes including DBS checking.All staff and volunteers complete mandatory safeguarding induction training regardless of whether they work with children and young people, their family and/or carers. Mandatory face to face training is provided to all our staff who work directly with children and young people.

We have safeguarding procedures, policies and guidance for all of our staff and volunteers that ensures clear, robust action can be taken when required.

Our safeguarding procedures and practice mean that we can provide a safe place for children and young people to engage with us and the services we provide.
