BCB is dedicated in ensuring that the principles and duties of safeguarding children, young people, and adults at risk are holistically, consistently and conscientiously applied with the wellbeing of all, at the heart of what we do. We are dedicated to ensuring that the principles and duties of safeguarding children and adults are applied every time a citizen accesses the services offered by BCB.


What is ‘safeguarding’ and why is it important to us?

Safeguarding means protecting a citizen’s health, wellbeing and human rights; enabling them to live free from harm, abuse and neglect. It is an integral part of providing high-quality service.  Safeguarding children, young people and adults is a collective responsibility.

Those most in need of protection include:

  • Children and young people
  • Adults at risk, such as those receiving care in their own home, people with physical, sensory and mental impairments, and those with learning disabilities.
