In this section of the website you will find all The Garage Policies and Procedures documents for staff and freelancers as updated February 2018. 

As a member of staff, it is your duty to ensure you are familiar with The Garage’s policies and procedures. We would recommend re-reading these policies annually, and know where to find them should you need to reference them. 

If you have any concerns or questions on any of these policies, or would like anything clarifying, please contact Adam Yaxley

Following some changes to processes at Childrens’ Services, we have updated our safeguarding policies and procedures to better reflect current practice.

Please find in the ‘Participation’ section the Child Protection Policy statement, the full Child Protection Policy and the procedure for reporting concerns, please familiarise yourself with the contents – anything highlighted in yellow has been added or amended since the last version.

Please note all child protection concerns should be raised on MyConcern. If you do not yet have a MyConcern username, please contact Adam Yaxley.
