Mid & West Wales Fire & Rescue Service are committed to the safety and wellbeing of people in our communities. We have a shared responsibility with partner agencies to ensure that we actively prevent harm and to achieve the best outcomes for members of our communities.
This includes Violence against Women, Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence (VAWDASV). We are proud of our White Ribbon status and are dedicated to the requirements of Ask & Act 2015. Visit the Wales Government website for more information on "Ask and Act".
Our Policies and Procedures are underpinned by the ‘Wales Safeguarding Procedures’. For more information on the Wales Safeguarding Procedures, visit the Children in Wales website.
All staff who work with children and young people undergo an enhanced DBS check and receive Safeguarding training.
We work closely with Western Bay, Cysur Regional Safeguarding Boards and the National Fire Chiefs Council to ensure good practice. Members of our Safeguarding Team expand all areas within nid and west Wales and are available to offer support and guidance.
