Policy Statement

This policy shows how the home deals with the more social forms of abuse that are always likely to occur in group — including families — and community living arrangements as important dimensions of its overall safeguarding strategy. It reflects the home’s commitment to ensure that its service users are fully safeguarded from all form sf abuse.

Bullying can be defined as any unsolicited or unwelcome act that humiliates, intimidates or undermines the individual involved and includes cyber-bullying. Bullying is a form of abuse, which can come from staff or peer behaviour. Harassment, which can take many different forms including stalking, is a form of bullying. Bullying can lead to exploitation in its different forms, including financial, social and sexual exploitation, scapegoating, and ostracism. Victims of bullying might suffer emotional distress, social isolation, accidents, illness, non-participation, poor self-esteem and morale and low levels of functioning in the different areas of their lives.
