Safeguarding

Our Statement of Intent

At Elysium Training, our aim is to ensure that everyone is Safeguarded as far as possible regardless of age, gender or physical and mental health.Therefore, we would like all Apprentices, Employers, Staff and Affiliate’s to feel comfortable and confident to speak to our Designated Safeguarding Leads about any concerns they have, regardless of how small they may seem.  

Local authorities have overarching responsibility for safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children, young people and vulnerable adults in their area.  Whilst local authorities play a lead role in safeguarding children, young people and vulnerable adults, protecting them from harm is everyone’s responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children, young people and vulnerable adults has a role to play.
