We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults, and expect our registrants, staff and stakeholders to share this commitment.

The AHCS Safeguarding Policy sets out:

  • the legal framework
  • the overarching principles that guide the AHCS approach to safeguarding.
  • the safeguards that the AHCS has put in place to protect members of the public, registrants and its employees

The policy also includes guidance on the procedure followed when a safeguarding disclosure is received and the timescales and process for undertaking a safeguarding investigation.

The AHCS Safeguarding Policy is available for you to download and read.
