Safeguarding

We take the safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults very seriously and have robust policies and procedures in place that are focused on upholding the rights of those who may be vulnerable to abuse, including state and institutional harm. Our policies can be accessed below. 

Children's safeguarding policy

Adults safeguarding policy.

Designated leads for the charity are Nick Watts and Jane Goldsmid. The safeguarding trustee is Vicky Weir. 

Funding

We believe strongly that funding transparency is very important and here we list where our money comes from. In terms of our policy, we will not accept or tender for contracts connected to any state body or local authority as we feel it reduces impartiality and independence. If we feel that money will create any sort of conflict with the work that we do, we will not accept it. More information can be found about our funding in our annual reporting to the Charities Commission.

Our funding mix is made up of trusts, major funders, individual donors and a small income from training and lectures. In addition in our funding mix we have one funded partnership project with the charity Refugees at Home.  

 

We would like to give our huge thanks to individuals that help us carry out our work with their donations.
