The Albany agrees that it is always unacceptable for a child or any person to experience abuse and recognises its responsibility to safeguard the welfare of all children and adults at risk, by a commitment to practice which protects them.

We recognise that:

  • the welfare of the child/ adult at risk is paramount and that anyone, regardless of age, disability, gender, racial heritage, religious belief, sexual orientation or identity, has the right to equal protection from all types of harm or abuse;
  • working in partnership with children, their parents/ carers and vulnerable adults and their agencies is essential in promoting their welfare.

Everyone shares responsibility for safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children irrespective of individual professional or volunteering roles.
