The Locala Safeguarding Team is passionate about keeping our patients safe when they are in our care and ensuring all Locala workforce can recognise signs of abuse and neglect in all its forms.
The Safeguarding Team support colleagues to understand and work within local and national guidelines and are available to provide support and guidance to all colleagues when requested.
We work with our services and partner agencies to support and promote safeguarding across all Local Authority areas where Locala provides services.
The Safeguarding Team is responsible for sharing any learning or recommendations that are made in relation to safeguarding adults and children and for providing assurance of Locala safeguarding practice to Locala Board and regulators.
The team constantly reviews current practice and procedures and seeks ways to improve outcomes for individuals who are vulnerable to abuse and neglect and embed safeguarding at the heart of everything Locala does.
The team is very proud that Locala was accredited in December 2020 with the Leaders in Safeguarding Award, following a thorough external review of the organisation's safeguarding arrangements.
The Locala Safeguarding Team do not take direct referrals from members of the public, if you have any concerns that a child or adult may be at risk, it is important that you contact your Local Authority Children’s or Adults Social Care directly, or the police if you believe them to be at immediate risk of harm.
"You can be confident that your safeguarding arrangements have been thoroughly examined by the Leaders in Safeguarding Scrutiny and Validation Panel and comply with our exacting standards"
