The Little Princess Trust Safeguarding Policy
The Little Princess Trust believes that a child or adult should never experience abuse of any kind. The charity recognises that it has a responsibility to promote the welfare of all children and adults at risk and to keep them safe.
Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children are everyone’s responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families and carers has a role to play in safeguarding children. If children and families are to receive the right help at the right time, everyone who comes into contact with them has a role to play in identifying concerns, sharing information, and taking prompt action.
The charity will take all reasonable measures to ensure that all staff and volunteers are aware of their Safeguarding responsibilities. The Little Princess Trust is dedicated to safeguarding both children and adults at risk. A Safeguarding Policy is in place, and regularly reviewed, covering all staff, Trustees, volunteers, representatives, including salons and individual wig fitters providing the services of The Little Princess Trust to its beneficiaries. The policy also applies to all staff and volunteers as they go about their daily tasks.
