Safeguarding

Ards and North Down Borough Council is committed to keeping children, young people and adults who may be vulnerable, safe when in our care.

Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility.

There is a duty on organisations to make appropriate arrangements to safeguard and promote the welfare of children, young people and adults who may be vulnerable. The purpose of this policy is to set out how this duty will be implemented by the Council in the discharge of its duties.
