Safeguarding policy

The  safety  and well-being  of  young people  is  of paramount  importance for LAFF;  it is  the  foundation of  our  mission, the  very  reason for  our  existence. The  staff,  volunteers, and  representatives  of our  organisation  have a  moral  and legal  obligation  to ensure  that,  when given  responsibility  for young  people,  we provide  them  with the  highest  possible standard  of  care. LAFF  is  committed to  devising  and implementing  policies  so that  everyone  involved in  our  operations accepts  their  responsibilities  to safeguard  children  from harm  and  abuse, follow  the  designated procedures  to  protect children,  and  report any  concerns  about their  welfare  to appropriate  authorities.  The aim  of  the policy  is  to promote  good  practice, providing  children  and young  people  with appropriate  safety  and protection  whilst  in contact  with  LAFF, and  to  allow  staff and  volunteers  to make  informed  and confident  responses  to specific  child  protection issues,  both  readily apparent  and  less obvious.
