Our commitment to safeguarding
CSW is committed to maintaining the highest possible standards of integrity, accountability and openness as an organisation.
Our staff are obliged to conduct themselves in keeping with these high standards.
As Christians, we believe that every human has immeasurable value and deserves to be treated with dignity and respect.
CSW is committed to providing a safe environment which safeguards and protects anyone coming into contact with us, including all beneficiaries, staff, volunteers and supporters.
We want all beneficiaries, staff, volunteers and supporters to know and experience CSW as a safe and trusted organisation.
We want all organisations who work with us, or who provide funding or other support to us, to have confidence in CSW and recognise that we are a safe organisation. We will achieve this by having effective and rigorous safeguarding policies, practices and procedures and by following all relevant local, national and international guidance and regulation.
Our safeguarding policies and practices are reviewed every year to ensure that they remain relevant and effective.
Any allegation or concern regarding the abuse of a child or adult must be treated seriously and be reported within 24 hours of having been made aware of the issue/concern. A concern can arise when abusive behaviour is observed or suspected, when an allegation is made or disclosed, or where there are indicators (signs and symptoms) of suspected abuse on the victim.
There are two ways to report a concern:
Phone: +44(0)20 8329 0010
All calls and emails reporting concerns will be treated in complete confidence.
All concerns raised or reported will be shared with CSW at a senior executive level, investigated thoroughly, and action will be taken in line with CSW’s policies.
