Safeguarding

Introduction

CG Partnership is committed to protecting all our learners. However, we do assume that the majority of adults are capable of protecting themselves and that only a proportion is vulnerable and potentially in need of protective intervention. This policy explains who we are acting to protect and how.

Who is defined as vulnerable?

The Safeguarding Vulnerable Groups Act 2006, section 59, defines a person as a vulnerable adult if they have attained the age of 18 and

  • They are in residential accommodation,
  • They are in sheltered housing,
  • They receive domiciliary care,
  • They receive any form of health care,
  • They are detained in lawful custody,
  • They are by virtue of an order of a court under supervision.
  • They receive a welfare service of a prescribed description.
  • They require assistance in the conduct of their own affairs.

Safeguarding Principles

  • CG Partnership has a duty to protect vulnerable adults.
  • All allegations of abuse of a vulnerable adult must be treated seriously.
  • Wherever there is a suspicion regarding the safety of a vulnerable person the procedures for alerting, reporting, investigating and managing the safeguarding of adults should be discharged promptly and fully.
  • All action taken must be carried out sensitively, taking into account the vulnerable adult’s individual needs, including race, culture and ethnicity, age, gender, religion, disability or sexuality.
  • An individual’s communication needs should be considered at all times.
