We train all of our staff to recognise the key signs of abuse:
- Physical abuse
- Emotional abuse
- Sexual Abuse
Staff are trained in all aspects of the PREVENT strategy. There are regular updates of current trends and patterns in safeguarding issues to all staff.
Staff are trained to respond sensitively to concerns. All learner and staff concerns have the welfare of the person being paramount. Confidentiality is key, and breaches can be treated as a disciplinary matter.
Total People confidentially record concerns and will make sure that only those staff who need to know will be informed of any issues.
Total People have well developed links with other support agencies and will be able to help you over a range of issues.We have clear and visible policies regarding information sharing, to ensure that only relevant information is shared with our partners.
Total People’s safeguarding policy is reviewed annually and there are regular meetings to ensure that key people are kept up to date with current trends. The safeguarding team meet regularly to review ongoing concerns, and discuss any learning points.
