Safeguarding

Safeguarding Policy

Safeguarding means protecting adults and children from abuse, harm and neglect. All voluntary organisations are required to have safeguarding procedures in place. Our Safeguarding Policy and Procedures are designed to enable Monmouth u3a to run in a way that prevents harm, harassment, bullying or neglect to its members. They comply with the Safeguarding requirements of the Third Age Trust, and are intended to support members who have safeguarding concerns about fellow members, or themselves.

For any issues related to safeguarding, please use the contact page to send a message to safeguarding, or alternatively, send an email directly to: safeguarding@monmouthu3a.com
 
We will endeavour to get back to you as soon as possible.
