Safeguarding of vunerable adults policy
for dealing with suspicions or allegations of adult abuse
The safety and protection of vulnerable adults is an absolute priority for Blackburne House, its staff, Board and volunteers. This policy outlines our commitment to and recognition of our responsibilities to safeguard and protect vulnerable adults in all areas of our work.
Blackburne House recognises that members of staff and students have a role to play in protecting adults and preventing abuse. Blackburne House acknowledges that for the procedure to be effective it is important that all staff receive adequate briefing and that nominated staff receive training.
Blackburne House takes account of guidance issued by the Department for Education, and by relevant government departments and by Liverpool City Council’s Adult Social Care service.
