    Safeguarding Policy

    The Council agreed its Safeguarding Policy at a Cabinet meeting on 9th March 2017.

    The revised policy aims to ensure that an overarching approach to safeguarding is embedded within all Council services and that staff, elected Members, those delivering contracts on behalf of the Council and volunteers understand their role and responsibilities in supporting all residents to live a life free from abuse, exploitation and intimidation.

    It applies to all staff, volunteer workers, Members and organisations providing services under contract with Basildon Borough Council.

    The Safeguarding Policy encompasses:
    • Safeguarding and Promoting the Welfare of Children & Young People
    • Child Sexual Exploitation
    • Safeguarding Adults
    • Domestic Abuse
    • Honour Based Abuse, including Forced Marriage and Female Genital Mutilation
    • Prevent (part of the Government's anti-terrorism strategy)
    • Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking
    • E-safety.
