Our Safeguarding Practices
Our Carers are trained to have and take responsibility for the safety and wellbeing of service users and their colleagues. Safeguarding adults means protecting a person’s right to live in safety, free from abuse and neglect. Every step we take to streamline safeguarding policies is aligned to the Health and Social Care Act Care. We ensure that our service users live a life free from harm and abuse as this is their fundamental human right. All our staff receives training in this respect at induction and during progressive refresher trainings.
