Safeguarding children and adults

It is the responsibility of every employee of Newark and Sherwood District Council to assist in the safeguarding and promotion of the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults.

Our safeguarding policy for children and adults ensures staff are aware of their responsibilities in protecting and safeguarding as part of their work.

Modern slavery and human trafficking statement

A key objective within our Community Plan is to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour and increase feelings of safety in our communities.

As part of that commitment, and following recommendation by Homes & Communities Committee, we've created a modern slavery and human trafficking statement (PDF File, 632kb) which includes our policies and procedures around the issue.
