Safeguarding & Protecting Children & Young People

Active Dorset champions Safeguarding locally, working to ensure that discussions, proposals, plans, and concepts include suitable safeguarding considerations. With our partners we provide guidance on minimum safeguarding standards and policies to mitigate the possibility of child and vulnerable adult abuse. We have embedded mechanisms for advising and signposting to approved safeguarding training, DBS checks and safeguarding resources.
