Safeguarding means protecting people’s wellbeing, health, and human rights, allowing them to live free from harm, abuse, and neglect. This is everyone’s basic right. It's a responsibility that we all share, and at Sanctuary Supported Living, we are committed to ensuring the safety and well-being of all our customers and communities.
We work tirelessly to maintain a safe and secure environment for our customers and staff. Our robust safeguarding policies and procedures are designed to identify, prevent, and respond to potential harm or abuse. We provide ongoing training and support to our teams, empowering them to recognise and act upon any safeguarding concerns. We recognise that all our staff are responsible for supporting and safeguarding customers – regardless of their job role.
Your safety and well-being are our top priorities. When you choose Sanctuary Supported Living, you can trust that we are dedicated to creating a safe environment where you can thrive. Our teams are trained to recognise the signs of harm or abuse and will take immediate action to address any concerns.
