Safeguarding Policy

December 13, 2021

Refugees at Home believes that it is never acceptable for a child or vulnerable adult to experience abuse of any kind and is committed to the safety of all members of the Refugees at Home community, including hosts and the members of their households, guests, home visitors and our employees. This is everyone’s responsibility.

Refugees at Home recognises that the welfare of children and vulnerable adults is paramount and that children and vulnerable adults, without exception, have the right to equal protection from abuse regardless of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage or civil partnership, pregnancy or maternity, race, religion or belief, sex, or sexual orientation.

This policy applies to all board members, volunteers, including hosts and home visitors, and employees of Refugees at Home.
