Safeguarding guidance for visitors or contractors

The university is committed to supporting students, apprentices, colleagues and visitors and recognises the importance of health and wellbeing in relation to their academic and university experience. Our aim is to create an environment in which all members of the university community, including those under the age of 18 and adults at risk, are safe from harm and all forms of prejudice, harassment, discrimination, and bullying. We recognise that we are all responsible for providing a safe physical and online environment and culture in which everyone can thrive and embed this approach into our daily practice, training, policies, and procedures.
