What is safeguarding?
The WEA provides a welcoming environment where everyone is:
- can feel safe and secure.
This includes all:
- volunteers, and
- individual visitors who access our facilities and services.
Any concerns in relation to any unwelcome behaviours (to you or anyone else), should be reported, including:
- and bullying,
How do I report any concerns?
They should be reported to the Regional or National Safeguarding Officer. They will explore and seek to resolve any concerns.
The WEA has a clear Safeguarding Policy, and procedures are reviewed each year.
Staff are trained to maintain a culture of vigilance. All staff and tutors are required to undertake a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.
