Children’s Safeguarding Policy

Our protocol:

Never contact anyone under 18 years old

1. Anyone under 18 can only contact us through an adult intermediary

2. We normally refer parents to a solicitor only if not already represented. We can also provide a list of support organisations and advice helplines

3. Vulnerable adults must have two contacts, one of whom should be the same gender, and only meet in a public place

4. We no longer rely on volunteers except students and graduates of relevant disciplines

5. Everyone must have a recent DBS check

Our statutory documents are frequently updated and available on request
