Connected Together CIC’s safeguarding policy ensures there are robust procedures in place to ensure the needs of any children and young people ‘in transition’ are addressed as they move into adulthood.

It is compulsory for all board members, staff and volunteers to follow this safeguarding policy when engaged in activities on behalf of or representing CTCIC and any of its managed and contracted organisations, including HWN and HWR, etc.

CTCIC recognises that the degree to which staff and volunteers interact with children and young people (CYP) will vary according to the nature of their work but even those not directly working with CYP might have access to sensitive information or come across concerns.
