Scotty’s Little Soldiers are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children, young people and young adults. At Scotty’s one of our core values is ‘Families Come First’ and we constantly promote this in our everyday work.

Everyone in our team knows they have a duty to report any safeguarding concerns, disclosures, allegations or suspicions to help protect our beneficiaries. We have a specific Team and Volunteers Safeguarding Pledge that explains our commitment.

The charity seeks to maintain a culture where our beneficiaries feel secure, are encouraged to talk, are listened to and are safe. Children are encouraged to talk freely to any team member or volunteer if they are worried or concerned about something.  We have a clear safeguarding policy focused on prevention, protection and support and means we will always work to:

  • Protect children from maltreatment and promote their welfare.
  • Prevent impairment of children’s health and/or development.
  • Ensure that children are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care
  • Take action to enable all children to have the best possible outcomes.

Our Safeguarding Adults Policy is based on the fundamental principle that all adults regardless of age, disability, gender, gender identity, ethnic, cultural, racial, national origins, religious belief/non-belief or sexual orientation have the right to live safely, free from abuse and neglect.

Whilst Scotty’s Little Soldiers is based in Norfolk, we support beneficiaries all around the UK and, in a few instances, abroad. We understand the need to adhere to safeguarding procedures relating to the area where children reside and are committed to ensuring we work in partnership with external agencies.

Please ask to speak to our Designated Safeguarding Person (DSP) to discuss any concerns.
