Safeguarding is everybody’s responsibility. You have a safeguarding responsibility to the staff and volunteers that work with your organisation as well as to any children, young people, families and/or adults at risk of abuse that you work with.
Community Action Suffolk can support you to develop an appropriate understanding of safeguarding risks and requirements and how to manage these.
Community Action Suffolk has wide ranging knowledge and experience of delivering safeguarding training and providing policy and procedural guidance. These are in accordance with the Suffolk Safeguarding Partnership guidance on how to support groups working with children, young people and adults at risk of abuse.
Abuse is not normal.
Communities have a part to play in preventing, detecting and reporting neglect, abuse and exploitation and other criminal behaviour such as scamming. We ask you to join us, and with our colleagues from the Police, Suffolk Health Services, Suffolk County Council et c. to prevent abuse from happening, protect those being abused and take action.
