POLICY FOR THE PROTECTION OF UNDER-18s AND VULNERABLE ADULTS

University of Essex

The University is legally obliged and committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of under-18s  and vulnerable adults  who participate in its organised activities or services. These include registered students who are under 18 or would be regarded as vulnerable adults, children who come onto University premises as part of organised activities such as visits or summer schools and University staff working off campus (e.g. widening participation activities in local schools). The University must ensure that reasonable steps to promote and safeguard the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults are taken and to ensure that relevant legislation and government guidance is complied with. University of Essex, Policy for the Protection of Under-18ís and Vulnerable Adults

Any concerns, however minor, should be discussed with the Director or Assistant Directors of Student Support or with one of the University's 'Designated Officers'. Student Support should hold contact details for next of kin, including contacts in the UK for those resident abroad, in the event of a serious problem.
