Safeguarding Statement

Bield Housing & Care are committed to working with a wide range of vulnerable people, and throughout our services, employees and volunteers could, from time to time, become aware of / or suspect situations where abuse of a vulnerable person may be taking place. 

We will not knowingly ignore or allow such incidents to continue unchallenged and will require our employees / volunteers to take action in all cases where it is suspected that abuse of a vulnerable person is occurring, no matter whom the perpetrator is or who the victim is.  We will respect and support anyone who whistle-blows because they think someone is being abused.

We have an Adult Support and Protection Policy and Whistleblowing Policy to support this statement.
