Active Suffolk believes that the welfare and safety of adults at risk is of paramount importance and that all adults at risk have the right to protection from abuse and to take part in sport and physical activity without risk of harm.

Active Suffolk is committed to creating and maintaining a safe and positive environment and accepts its responsibility to safeguard the welfare of all adults involved in our activities in accordance with the Care Act 2014.

Active Suffolk recognises that it has a duty of care towards adults at risk and can help to protect them from abuse and poor practice.

Active Suffolk is committed to working with statutory bodies, voluntary agencies and other organisations to promote the safety and welfare of adults at risk, and acting promptly whenever a concern is raised about an adult at risk or about the behaviour of an adult. Active Suffolk will work with the appropriate statutory bodies when an investigation into abuse is necessary.

Active Suffolk has adopted an Adult Safeguarding Policy, Guidance and Procedures document. This document provides useful guidance, further information and useful contacts for all organisations involved in safeguarding adults at risk. The document can be accessed at the bottom of the page.
