Policy Statement

This policy sets out the values, principles and procedures underpinning this care home’s approach to protecting children who visit or live in a care home for adults. It is written to identify the safeguards needed for children who might visit or in exceptional cases live on the premises of an adult care home. The policy applies to any person under the age of 18, though most protection concerns will focus on children who are under 16. It needs to be read in association with the home’s policy on Visiting and Visitors in Care Homes (Scotland).
