Safeguarding & Staying Safe

Malvern Special Families is committed to safeguarding all children, young people and vulnerable adults that come into contact with our work.

We believe that all children, young people and vulnerable adults have an equal right to protection from abuse, regardless of their age, race, religion, ability, gender, language, background or sexual identity and consider the welfare of the child/young person/vulnerable adult is paramount.

We will take every reasonable step to ensure that children, young people and vulnerable adults are protected where our staff and associates are involved in the delivery of our work. All suspicions and allegations of abuse will be taken seriously and responded to swiftly and appropriately.

We enable all our staff and those who work with us, to make informed and confident decisions regarding safeguarding. We expect everyone to have read, understood and adhere to safeguarding policy and related procedures.

We believe that everyone involved in the care and development of young people has a role to play in safeguarding, and we take this responsibility very seriously. Our staff recruitment procedures are robust and consistent.

It is our job to make sure all the children and young people at our clubs stay safe.
We may need your help to keep you safe while at our clubs and ask that you listen to your leaders.

If you ever feel unsafe at one of our clubs or if you need someone to talk to, you can talk to one of your leaders and they will listen to you.
