Safeguarding Adults at Risk
Relate NI takes its responsibilities to adults at risk very seriously. During the course of delivering Relate NI services, staff may become aware of concerns about a person at risk (someone 18 and over who has additional needs, are at risk and are less able to protect themselves than others). Consultation about these concerns with a senior member of staff is mandatory and disclosure to the appropriate authorities may be required in order to safeguard these clients. This policy sets out Relate NI’s response and is in accordance with relevant legal frameworks.
