Radis is committed to working in accordance with relevant legislation, national guidance and local authority guidelines for adults at risk.
This policy applies to all employees so they are aware of adults at risk, what this means in their working practices and how to deal with suspected, disclosed or discovered incidents.
Managers will report any concerns of whistle-blowing in relation to adults at risk that has been brought to their attention or that they are aware of to the Local Authority Adult Social Care Commissioners and the Care Quality Commission (CQC) or Care Inspectorate Wales (CIW).
The way local authorities work varies, however, each adult social service’s responds within a framework based on the Care Act or Social Services Well-Being (Wales) Act.
All branches and services must work within, and refer to, their local authority safeguarding policy and procedures and be fully aware of, and keep up to date with, local information and reporting requirements.
Everyone has a role to play in safeguarding and Radis commits to working within local authority multi-agency approaches to safeguard adults at risk and will co-operate fully at all times.
Radis’ Board of Directors provides governance and strategic over-sight for the company’s safeguarding work and appoints the Group Operations Director to act as the company’s over-arching safeguarding lead.
Radis operates a zero tolerance towards all kinds of abuse.
This policy is reviewed on an annual basis and approved by:
