Befriended is committed to upholding strict policies and procedures to keep everyone safe, both clients, volunteers, and our staff.

All volunteers and staff members are DBS checked before they are able to visit any clients. We also provide introductory training, safeguarding training and Dementia Awareness before volunteers start and we then continue to provide training and support throughout their time with us.

Safeguarding Policy

Safeguarding is such an important area for us as an organisation and we take the subject very seriously. All our volunteers are DBS checked and go through training to ensure they can spot any signs of abuse.

You can view the latest version of our safeguarding policy below.
