At Haven Project Liverpool we take safeguarding very seriously and believe that safeguarding children and adults with care needs and protecting them from harm is everyone’s responsibility. We recognise that the welfare of all children and adults with care needs is paramount. All our work with parents is conducted in line with the Haven Projects Safeguarding Policy.
The Haven Project requires a certain amount of personal information about the parents we work with in order to a deliver an effective service. We ensure that we only hold the information that we need and nothing more. All personal information is held securely and with parents’ expressed consent.
At the end of our involvement with a parent all personal information held by the Haven Project is securely destroyed. Basic anonymised data is retained, such as how long a parent worked with us, key issues and outcomes, in order to provide evidence of the work of our organisation.
All parents working with Haven Project Liverpool have the right to expect that the information they provide, or that is provided about them by third parties, in the course of our work together will be kept confidential. Personal information relating to parents and their families will only be used for the purpose for which it was given and will not be passed on to other people or agencies without a parents express consent.
Confidential information will only be shared without consent to relevant authorities if information received by the Haven Project indicates that a child or adult with care needs is suffering or is likely to suffer significant harm, in line with our safeguarding policy.
