Safeguarding

The Area Meeting’s policy on the safeguarding of children and young people and vulnerable adults was agreed in July 2015. The latest version is here. The Clerks of all Local Meetings hold a copy. A Safeguarding Quick Reference Guide is also available.

The Safeguarding Co-ordinators and the AM Children and Young People’s Work Advocate have drawn up guidance for meetings who are thinking about setting up a children’s or young people’s meeting or event.

The AM’s safeguarding_poster contains contact details for the AM Safeguarding Co-ordinator and Deputy Co-ordinator, as well as for a number of national agencies and helplines.
