This policy mainly applies where a domiciliary care service is providing support to children and young people. It could also apply to vulnerable adults who might lack mental capacity. Issues of e-safety are likely to arise when the agency’s staff are responsible for a service user who is engaged in or seeks to obtain access to the Internet via computer or handheld device without the parents/guardians being present to give their consent.
