Safeguarding adults is the process by which we must protect people who are vulnerable to harm and abuse in all its forms. The Lighthouse team is committed to fulfilling its duty of care by safeguarding people in our services. Safeguarding the people we support is a central theme to our ethos of service.
We are fully committed to partnership working in safeguarding the people who we support. In the event of any incident, or allegation of an incident, where there is a safeguarding concern we will work very closely with all relevant external parties to investigate, seek advice and feedback lessons learned.
We will comply with our duties of care under the Health and Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) Regulations 2014: Regulation 13. We have clear processes in place to safeguard people from abuse, or the risk of abuse.
Our Safeguarding governance is communicated to all staff, in all services and the central support function. The Board of Directors is committed to ensuring that Lighthouse undertakes all its duties appropriately and receives regular reports on Safeguarding policy, training, audits and any allegations or incidents where Safeguarding is a concern.
Anyone has the right to raise a concern and can be confident that it will be treated seriously and dealt with appropriately.
