Chelmsford City Council

Safeguarding

We have adopted a Safeguarding Children and Vulnerable Adults Policy, as we are committed to protecting vulnerable people.

Our policy is relevant to Chelmsford City Council:

  • employees

  • elected members

  • consultants, contractors and agency staff working for us

  • members of the public volunteering with us

  • organisations, companies and individuals who are suppliers to us

If you are not included in our policy, you can look at Essex County Council Health and Social Care for more information on safeguarding.

We provide our employees with training, supervision and support, so that they are:

  • able to identify potential indicators of abuse

  • less likely to become involved in actions that may cause harm to vulnerable  individuals

  • less likely to do anything that could be misinterpreted

When suppliers, contractors and consultants work with us, they need to agree to follow our safeguarding standards.

 

Modern slavery

To meet the requirements of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (Part 6), we have published a Modern Slavery Statement.

Everyone we work with, including their supply chains, have to state that they are compliant with all aspects of the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
