Service Safeguarding Statement

The Ashford Mediation Service firmly believes that every person has the right to live a life free from abuse, exploitation and neglect. Our Trustees are responsible for ensuring that those benefiting from or working with our charity, are not harmed in any way through contact with it.  We have a legal duty to act prudently and we must take reasonable steps within our power to ensure that this does not happen.

 The Ashford Mediation Service works with adults as well as children, some of whom are  under the age of eighteen. We will comply with the UK government inter-agency statutory guidance to safeguard children and vulnerable adults, always acting in their best interest and ensuring that we take all reasonable steps to prevent harm to them.
