We take all matters of safeguarding very seriously at Be Free Young Carers and are here to support anyone wishing to discuss any concerns they have. All our Staff and Volunteers are Safeguarding Level 2 & Prevent trained. We have designated Safeguarding Leads in place for our staff, trustees, befrienders and volunteers to come to if in the event a concern needs to be raised or taken further.
