Safeguarding is the overarching term used to describe the protection of the health, wellbeing and human rights of individuals.
The University of Lincoln is committed to ensuring students have an environment where they can work, study and live safely. We work together, alongside our partners to provide the highest levels of safety and wellbeing.
Our responsibility for safeguarding extends to apprentices, including both in and out of their workplace, students who are on placements or visits away from the Campus, and visitors.
The dedicated Safeguarding Team promote and implement the Safeguarding Policy, ensuring it is reviewed regularly and acted upon accordingly. In addition, all University staff are trained in safeguarding and have access to additional information, advice, guidance and training. The Safeguarding Team can also be contacted by any member of staff who may have questions or concerns regarding the safeguarding and wellbeing of their students.
Students, including apprentices, are made aware of the support services and can contact them to discuss any concerns or support requirements. All information, advice and guidance are confidential, however, referrals to external agencies may be required where there is a safeguarding concern.
