At Willen Hospice, we are committed to promoting the wellbeing and safety of all our patients and their family members, our customers, staff and volunteers.
Safeguarding means protecting a citizen’s health, well-being and human rights; enabling them to live free from harm, abuse and neglect.
It is an integral part of providing high-quality health care. – NHS
In all walks of life, we encounter vulnerable people – children, the elderly, or those with additional care and support needs or disabilities – who might not be able to protect themselves.
We can all be part of making a difference by making sure they are not at risk.
Willen Hospice’s Safeguarding Strategy demonstrates an ongoing commitment for Safeguarding to be a priority in all we do.

If you are concerned that a vulnerable person or child is being abused or neglected, or at risk of it, then we encourage you to take action immediately.
You may contact our Social Care team on 01908 663636 or email us at Socialcare@willen-hospice.org.uk
If you feel a child or adult at risk is in immediate danger then call the Police 999 emergency number.
