YSAS is committed to providing a safe environment for all young people who come into contact with, or access our services. We recognise that all young people have the right to develop and reach their potential in environments that are caring, nurturing and safe.
YSAS considers any form of young person abuse, inclusive of emotional, physical, sexual abuse or neglect, as intolerable under any circumstances.
YSAS works with vulnerable young people whose lives are affected by serious disadvantage, which may include exploitation and abuse. As such, YSAS has a legal, ethical and mission driven responsibility to protect young people from harm and to ensure that any incidents of suspected child abuse are promptly and appropriately dealt with.
As YSAS, safeguarding young people from harm is everybody's responsibility.
