Safeguarding Children

The Family Centre is committed to creating a safe and inclusive environment for all our members and their children.

We take the wellbeing of children very seriously.  Our Safeguarding Children Policy is updated every year and all our staff, volunteers, trustees, tutors and sessional workers are familiar with the content.  We have a separate policy which covers the use of mobile phones and cameras at our activities.

We encourage all our members to familiarise themselves with the policy and speak to us if they have any concerns.
