How we try to keep people safe

We take safety very seriously and recognise that we are supporting people to go to places that could be busy, and late at night. We do all we can to keep the people we work with safe and this includes:

  • All volunteers have police checks
  • All volunteers are trained around safeguarding and we have ongoing support meetings to talk about any problems
  • We will discuss any specific support needs with the participant and the volunteer where appropriate

We also ask volunteers to think about their role in terms of raising any concerns they may have about their buddy’s welfare. So we aim to make the role about keeping people even safer in their lives and community.
