This policy is consistent with the care service’s commitment to keeping its service users safe whenever it is responsible for a person’s care and wellbeing. It is produced mainly to ensure that children are kept safe when taken out of their home under the care of workers employed by a domiciliary care or support service. The general principles apply also to the escorting of vulnerable adults, for example, in care homes or supported living arrangements.
Care workers might on occasion, depending on the service provision agreed, be expected to take a service user out of their home or an adult care home, either alone or with the person’s representatives/parents. This is more likely if the service user is a child.
