Safeguarding

The BPC has a key role to ensure the public are protected when they are engaged in therapy with our Registrants. We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and vulnerable adults.

Our guidance to our Registrants on safeguarding can be found in our Safeguarding Policy (downloadable below). The purpose of this policy is to set a clear framework for Clinicians in relation to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults.

This policy provides a suggested protocol to help Registrants identify vulnerable children and adults and take appropriate action in response to safeguarding them. It is intended for all Member Institutions (MIs) and all Registrants that are listed on the BPC Register. It is particularly applicable to Registrants working in independent private practice.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and vulnerable adults.
