Safeguarding Policy

Safeguarding is at the heart of everything we do at The MCA Trust and paramount within the provision of services and the effective care we provide to the young people in which we support. 

Safeguarding is everybody’s responsibility, and our volunteers work tirelessly to embed safe practices into the range of services and initiatives offered by The MCA Trust. 

At The MCA Trust, we take our commitment to safeguarding very seriously and work hard to protect and promote the rights of the young people who we support. Safeguarding is at the forefront of each activity we carry out – from the onboarding of our volunteers to the development of new and existing ways in which we can work to fundraise and directly support children and young people with cancer. 

The MCA Trust work in accordance with both the legal requirements and statutory and regulatory responsibilities as a charitable organisation working to support young people. We are informed by Government guidance, safeguarding both children and adults at risk and have a clear governance structure in place for safeguarding. The MCA Trust’s policies, procedures and development govern the work of our organisation, its Patrons, Trustees and Volunteers alike. 

Where we believe there to be a risk of harm to an individual, we will always take action. 

Our volunteers are confident, equipped and take personal and professional responsibility for managing safeguarding concerns in line with The MCA Trust’s Safeguarding policy. 

The MCA Trust endeavour to continue to provide a safe and protected environment for all those connected to our charity. 

If you have a safeguarding concern relating a member of our team volunteering for The MCA Trust or you need to contact our Designated Safeguarding Lead, please email heretohelp@mcatrust.org.uk today. 

The MCA Trust, helping make a difference not just today, but every day.
