We have developed the following policies in line with our safeguarding principles to help us ensure that the children, young people and adults at risk who we work with and for are protected and kept safe from harm.

One of the ways we do this is by identifying individuals, through criminal records checks and/or barred list checks, who may be unsuitable to undertake 'regulated activity' or 'regulated work'.
