Safeguarding at CommUNITY Barnet

CommUNITY Barnet is committed to promoting the safety and welfare of all children, young people and vulnerable adults. It is unacceptable for anyone to experience abuse of any kind.  

We recognise our responsibility to safeguard all children, young people, and adults at risk and promote their welfare by creating a safe environment within which they can thrive. CommUNITY Barnet staff, volunteers, and other representatives can work with the security of precise guidance.
 

How we work

We take our safeguarding responsibilities very seriously throughout the organisation.

  • All our staff and volunteers receive safeguarding training.
  • Our staff, trustees and volunteers are recruited safely and undergo a DBS check before any work commencement.
