We recognise our primary duty is to ensure the safety, well-being and protection of children, young people and adults at risk of abuse or neglect.  All of our staff have a responsibility to act on any suspicion, disclosure or evidence of abuse or neglect wherever it occurs. Within our organisation and across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland, there are policies and procedures in place to protect people of all ages, who may need safeguarding.  These procedures ensure that the relevant agencies and services work together to prevent abuse, and to protect the most vulnerable people in our society.
