Safeguarding Policy Statement

The Johmard LYME believes that it is always unacceptable for a child or young person to experience abuse of any kind and recognises its responsibility to safeguarding the welfare of all children & young people, by a commitment to practice which protects them.

We recognise that: 

  • The welfare of the child is paramount
  • All children, regardless of age, disability, gender, racial heritage, religious belief, sexual orientation or identity, have the right to equal protection from all types of harm or abuse.
  • Working in partnership with children, young people, their parents, carers and other agencies is essential in promoting young people’s welfare.

The purpose of this policy is:

  • To provide protection for the children & young people who receive services from The Johmard LYME.
  • To provide staff and volunteers with guidance on procedures they should adopt in the event that they suspect a child or young person may be experiencing or be at risk of harm.

This policy applies to anyone working on behalf of The Johmard LYME.

We will seek to safeguard children & young people by:

  • Valuing them, listening to and respecting them.
  • Adopting clear safeguarding procedures and a code of conduct for all staff and volunteers.
  • Ensuring that all our staff and volunteers are carefully selected trained and supervised.
  • Sharing information about safeguarding & good practice with children & young people, parents and volunteers.
  • Sharing information about concerns with agencies who need to know and involving parents and children appropriately.
