Safeguarding at Candlelighters

Children, Young People and Adults at Risk Safeguarding Policy

Candlelighters believes all children and vulnerable adults have a right to be protected. This Safeguarding Policy is for Candlelighters trustees, employees, service providers and volunteers – safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility.

Our Safeguarding Policy sets the scene about why safeguarding is important and how we will behave and make decisions in everything we do to promote the safety and welfare of children, young people and adults at risk and to protect them from harm.

Supporting families via multi-media guidelines

Candlelighters has recently had to adapt the family support services in order to support families through the COVID 19 pandemic. We have been communicating with families using different multi-media modes and we will continue to deliver services this way in the future to help support families across the geographical areas we cover.

This includes the use of:
– Zoom
– Microsoft Teams
– Skype
– Whatsapp
– Phone calls

It is important that the professional manner and code of conduct we follow when working with families in the community, home or hospitals is extended to engaging in telecom and video conferencing meetings and applies to all contact with families.
