Our Policies

Safeguarding Policy

FDCW is committed to protecting people from harm and abuse. Everyone associated with FDCW has a right to be protected from all forms of physical or mental violence, injury or abuse, neglect or negligent treatment or exploitation, including sexual abuse and spiritual abuse.

We will ensure that all employees, contractors, facilitators and volunteers (such as Board members) work together, in line with this Safeguarding Policy, and act promptly when dealing with any allegations, suspicions, or evidence of abuse or inappropriate behaviour.

Safeguarding is Everybody's Reponsibility

We will work together to prevent and minimise the risk of abuse or harm. If we have concerns or have been informed that someone is at risk of being abused or harmed or has been abused or harmed, our first duty is to the child or adult concerned.

Doing Nothing is Not an Option

If we know or suspect that someone is at risk, we will respond and ensure our concerns are properly recorded. We will respond according to this policy and other procedures.     

People Designated for Safeguarding

The FDCW Designated Safeguarding Persons (DSP) are Victoria Coleman and Wendy Ridley.
