Safeguarding & Ethical Guidelines

Safeguarding Adults and Children at Newcastle Buddhist Centre

We have newly revised Child Protection and Adult Safeguarding policies which  define what we mean by harm or abuse, set out our values, outline the steps we have taken to maintain the centre as a safe and welcoming space, what to do if you suspect abuse or harm, and what our safeguarding officers will do if abuse is reported.

Our two volunteer safeguarding officers are Mary Lowe and Helen Clarke. If you have any questions, concerns or worries about potential harm done to yourself or another person whilst attending the centre please do not hesitate to contact Mary or Helen on our confidential email address:  safeguarding.nbc@protonmail.com

Our Ethical Guidelines

Alongside these policies, we have our Ethical Guidelines, which apply to all those acting on behalf of the centre, in relation to everyone, whether classified as at risk or not.
