How to develop a #safeguarding culture?
The $64,000 question is how to develop a #safeguarding culture? Well, there are many ways to do it. This blog examines how we have worked with employees to overcome the ‘English Man’s Home is his Castle’ apathy, and have challenged the view that “I have no right or obligation to interfere with what’s going on behind closed doors”. We at PDP want to galvanise your company and employeees to develop a culture of appropriate vigilance and referrals.
