Keeping Everyone Safe
People Matters we really want to keep the people who use our services safe. If you want to know about safeguarding have a look at this Easy Read What is Safeguarding leaflet or the one from the council’s safeguarding board keeping-safe-from-abuse-easy-read.
We make sure that all our staff and volunteers have a DBS check and access information and training. Have a look at the basic safeguarding information LCC Safeguarding Leaflet they are given from Leeds City Council. We also make sure we use safer recruitment approaches when we recruit new staff.
People Matters has full safeguarding policies for both adults and young people. We work with LCC Adult Social Services and Childrens Services to keep people who use our services safe. Please tell us if you are worried about any member’s safety.
