Safeguarding children and young people
We have a duty of care to safeguard the welfare of children and young people while they are at King’s or being cared for in their own homes by our staff. We do this by:
- providing all clinical staff with child protection awareness training. We continually aim to meet recommended training levels and we report on this monthly.
- ensuring all staff are given information about the importance of child safeguarding and how they can support the needs of vulnerable children and young people.
- providing dedicated help through our specialist Safeguarding Children team to identify, protect and care for those at risk.
- working with GPs, social services and other professionals to ensure the needs of vulnerable children and young people are met.
