Wellbeing & Safeguarding Policy
** IMPORTANT PLEASE READ **
Our Wellbeing and Safeguarding policy is a fundamental aspect of building a healthy and respectful community.
It provides a framework for protecting vulnerable individuals, ensuring legal compliance, preventing harm, promoting well-being, raising awareness, fostering accountability, building trust, and facilitating collaboration.
It establishes a foundation for creating a safe, inclusive, and supportive environment for all community members.
By having a safeguarding policy in place, the community demonstrates its commitment to accountability and transparency. It sets clear expectations for behaviour and establishes procedures for reporting concerns or incidents. This fosters an environment where individuals feel empowered to come forward and where potential wrongdoings can be addressed promptly and appropriately.
You can access the full policy here and it has a table of contents down the side, to quickly access specific information such as reporting a concern.
In the spirit of collaboration, we are open to learning and sharing with other communities and organisations. As we created this from scratch, it will continue to be a work in progress as we navigate through this extremely complex and sensitive topic.
