Youth Hubz has a holistic approach to safeguarding, which starts with our understanding of our responsibility to safeguard and to promote the welfare of all young people that we support.
Our safer recruitment policy ensures amongst other things that all our staff are all subject to an enhanced DBS check and are made aware of our safeguarding procedure during our initial induction training and subsequent ongoing training and supervision to ensure they can work in ways that promote young person’s ongoing safety and wellbeing. The underlying principles of the safeguarding procedure are set out in the Working Together to Safeguard Children (2018) policy. Any incidents which may impact on the welfare of a young person will be dealt with swiftly and appropriately and will allow young people, parents, family members and siblings (where appropriate) the opportunity to voice their concerns in line with our robust safeguarding policy. All staff are responsible for ensuring that all incidents that pose a risk to young people under our care will be reported to the Service manager who has designated safeguarding responsibilities along with the placing authorities Social Worker.
Youth Hubz will work in partnership with all relevant professionals and processes to identify, assess, manage, and reduce risks. Furthermore, we will also aim to build positive working links with parents / family, child care agencies, and those concerned with education, employment, welfare and other agencies to develop a holistic approach to supporting and protecting young people.
All our properties and activities are thoroughly risk assessed and we have high spec CCTV within and around the communal areas of the buildings for added safety and protection. Additional policies and procedures such as our anti-bullying and equal opportunities policies ensure that everyone in Youth Hubz behaves in a way that is respectful and inclusive of everyone.
