All our staff and volunteers have a responsibility to safeguard the welfare of people using our services, and we take this responsibility very seriously.

We all attend regular training in safeguarding, and a working group meets frequently to tackle any issues as soon as possible. Our policies and procedures are listed below, and staff would be happy to answer any questions you may have about how we do things.

If you are concerned about someone’s welfare, it is important to report this as soon as possible so we can help. Please get in touch immediately with your point of contact at CLAPA, or with any of the Safeguarding Team listed below.
