Safeguarding

Mercy Ships UK believes:

That every young person and adult at risk has the right to be safe and that their welfare is paramount. This includes young people and adults at risk regardless of gender, ethnic background, sexuality or religion, or with any disability.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and adults at risk and we seek to ensure that all of our services, staff and volunteers work to achieve the best outcomes for children, young people and adults, whilst responding effectively to any risks they may experience.

Safeguarding underpins all of the work of Mercy Ships UK and is carried out under a robust safeguarding policy framework. Mercy Ships UK recognises that safeguarding is the responsibility of everyone, and therefore seeks to make safeguarding a priority throughout the organisation. Resources are allocated to support this commitment and towards making Mercy Ships UK a safer organisation for all those associated with it.
