We are committed to supporting our clients when it comes to matters of safeguarding, whether that be young people or vulnerable adults.
Our staff are trained and experienced in working where young or vulnerable persons are present and the additional precautions and control measures to take.
Each member of our team has an enhanced DBS with a barred list check.
Additionally we are proud to serve a variety of other organisations that require our staff to be security cleared including non-police personnel vetting (NPPV).
