Safeguarding and Protection

Safeguarding and protection of vulnerable adults L’Arche Ireland

L’Arche Ireland aims to support each person with a disability in living as normal a life as possible in a safe and supportive environment, having opportunities for choice, personal development, fulfilling relationships and protection from exploitation and abuse.

All adults have the right to be safe and live a life free from abuse. It is the aim of L’Arche Ireland to ensure that at all times people who receive our services are treated with respect and dignity, have their welfare protected and receive support in an environment in which abuse is proactively prevented.

We are committed to safeguarding from abuse, all vulnerable adults who use our services and to having preventative measures and procedures in place for safeguarding them. We are committed to promoting a culture of zero tolerance of abuse, as well as ensuring L’Arche Ireland upholds principles of trust, respect, dignity, honest communication and positive risk management for all who receive and provide supports.
