Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children policy (Trust-wide)

Document category: Trust wide policy

Document date: December 1, 2022

The mission of our Trust is to help people reach their potential and live well in their communities. All our staff, whatever their role, have a part to play in helping us deliver this important mission. Every day, our staff are guided by our values:

  • Honest, open and transparent
  • Respectful
  • Person first and in the centre
  • Improve and be outstanding
  • Relevant today, ready for tomorrow
  • Families and carers matter

 Our values are very important to us; we know that the attitude and behaviours of our staff can have a huge impact on the quality of care we provide.

The Safeguarding Team support the Trust Transformation process and the principles of the Recovery Model.  The Safeguarding Team acknowledge that ‘each unique individual has a unique view on what living well means to them. Our role is to help people gain greater control and responsibility for their future’

Equality and diversity are at the heart of the Trust values and throughout the development of this policy, we have given due regard to the need to eliminate discrimination, harassment and victimisation, to advance equality of opportunity and to foster good relations between people who share relevant protected characteristics. This policy will not discriminate, either directly or indirectly, on the grounds of the 9 protected characteristics (age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion and belief, sex, sexual orientation).
