Safeguarding at A Rocha

Protecting dignity, ensuring safety

Our Commitment

At A Rocha, we are committed to safeguarding the health, wellbeing, and human rights of all individuals, irrespective of age, sex, disability, sexual orientation, or ethnic origin.

It is our firm belief that everyone we come into contact with has the right to live free from harm, abuse, neglect, and exploitation in harmony with the environment.

Our Approach to Safeguarding

We maintain a zero-tolerance policy towards serious misconduct. Violence, abuse, harassment, or exploitation of any kind by our staff or associates will not be tolerated. All our staff and representatives are expected to create an environment where children, young people, and adults can live without fear of harm, abuse, harassment, bullying, or exploitation.

Our Policies

Safeguarding is a priority for us. We adhere to best practices in safeguarding and related areas, as outlined in our regularly reviewed policies, including the Safeguarding Policy, Privacy Policy, Data Protection Policy, Whistleblowing Policy, and Staff Code of Conduct.

  • Phone: +44 (0) 300 770 1346 (You can leave a voice message, and we will call you back as soon as we are able.)
