NIFRS is committed to safeguarding children, young people and adults from abuse. We strive to promote the safety, dignity and wellbeing of people in the communities we serve and of our own personnel with the emphasises that ‘safeguarding is everyone’s business’.
Our Child Protection Policy and Adult Safeguarding Statement helps us to maintain a proper focus on safeguarding. These documents include the standard process for NIFRS personnel to follow in order to report safeguarding issues within the context of their work.
There is an expectation that all personnel will work in partnership to apply both the Policy and the Statement to their work with children, young people and adults who may be at risk of harm or in need of protection.
