Willen Hospice Safeguarding Strategy

Willen Hospice’s Safeguarding Strategy demonstrates an ongoing commitment for Safeguarding to be a priority in all we do. Here is the  framework we have in place:

  • Safeguarding Adults and Children’s Policy and Procedures
  • Designated Safeguarding Leads for adults and children
  • Trained champions to recognise domestic violence
  • Role- specific mandatory safeguarding training for all our staff, volunteers and trustees
  • Enhanced DBS checks for all with direct client or patient contact
  • External supervision by CCG Safeguarding lead nurses
  • Annual Safeguarding Self assessment Audit for CCG-commissioned services
  • Safeguarding clinical leads and a Safeguarding Steering Group including Willen Ventures
  • Safeguarding activities regularly monitored in Clinical Effectiveness, Clinical Governance and Senior Management Team
  • Collaboration with local Children and Adult Safeguarding stake holders
