Information, Advice and Guidance for Safeguarding

We believe that Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility. We want to help everyone to play a part in helping vulnerable people, learners, colleagues, friends, families and communities to be safe by knowing the potential sources of harm, the signs to look out for, where to get help and how to report concerns.

PeoplePlus is dedicated to providing a safe space in which to learn and thrive. We are committed to safeguarding all of our learners and protecting their right to live and learn in safety, free from abuse and/or neglect.
