Our primary aim is to create a safe space for all involved.
We believe everyone has the right to live free from abuse or neglect regardless of age, ability or disability, sex, race, religion, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, marital, gender status and immigration status.
We are committed to creating and maintaining a safe and positive environment and an open, listening culture where people feel able to share concerns without fear of retribution.
We acknowledge that safeguarding is everybody’s responsibility and is committed to prevent abuse and neglect through safeguarding the welfare of everyone involved.
We recognise that health, well-being, ability, disability and need for care and support can affect a person’s resilience. We recognise that some people experience barriers to communication, for example in raising concerns or seeking help . We recognise that these factors can vary at different points in people’s lives.
We recognise that there is a legal framework within which our organisation needs to work to safeguard adults who have needs for care and support and for protecting those who are unable to take action to protect themselves. We will act in accordance with the relevant safeguarding adult legislation and with local statutory safeguarding procedures.
Actions taken by Dovetail Music Workshops will be consistent with the principles of safeguarding, ensuring that any action taken is prompt, proportionate and that it includes and respects the voice of the adult concerned.
