About Us 7
We believe that by being transparent in what we do and how we do it we can develop stronger links with our service users, funders and stake holders. In addition to the required reporting to the Charity Commission and Companies House we have developed a number of additional annual reports on different aspects of the charity.
We produce an annual review for the Charity Commission and Companies House, but also to ensure we are transparent about what we do and how well we do it. Our reports are produced electronically and are available on our website.
Archive. It is no longer possible to obtain printed copies of our reports. Copies of older, printed reports may be made available, but this may take time and a small charge will apply to cover the cost of photocopying.
We measure a number of equality factors to see how our staff and service users compare to the local population.
We measure our impact on the environment to help us minimise our carbon footprint and contribute to the reduction of waste. Our environmental report provides information on how we manage our carbon footprint and minimise our impact on the environment through simple steps such as recycling.
We felt it was important that we were able to demonstrate to our team, service users and other stakeholders that we are a high quality organisation. It was agreed the best way to do this was through external accreditation. We have sought and achieved accreditation from a number of relevant awarding bodies:
We have a range of resources to help in various ways.
- There are resources to help you stay safe and to help you and your family stay safe online.
- There are links to other support organisations nationally and in your area.
- And there is a library of useful books on a variety of related topics.
Find out how to cover your tracks online.
One of the main reasons you can be vulnerable online is by sharing personal information inappropriately. What does that mean? It means telling everyone who you are, where you live, which school you go to, your mother's maiden name, and then telling everyone what you are doing, where you are going and when, and who you will be with.
Don't share personal information or complete online registration forms with your personal information if you don't have to.
It's easy to believe that other people online are trustworthy and that they are who they say they are. However, not everyone is who they say they are.
Before you share personal information online, think "would I like my mum /gran /teacher /etc to see or read this?"
It's also easy to get into a competition about how many "friends" you have. This may mean accepting friend requests from people you don't really know, or from someone you think you know - but who isn't who they say they are.
Taking time to check out friend requests before accepting them can help keep you safe.
Sharing photos can be fun and a way of keeping your genuine friends informed of what you've been up to. Remember, these photos may still be available online many years in the future and your future employer may see them.
Some employers check social media to vet potential employees.
There are ways to keep yourself safe by following the guidelines on the social media website. I wonder how many people spend time to read and follow these guidelines before they begin sharing their personal information? Have you read and followed the guidelines?
Below are some tips on keeping safe online; read on and make yourself safer. Share what you learn with your friends and help them be safer too.

We offer a range of services for individuals and families. Our services are developed to meet the need and demand within the local community. If you identify a service that isn't available in your area then let us know and we will see how we can help.
Children and young people know more about the abuse taking place at home than we might imagine. They are affected in many ways and often have nowhere to turn for support. Our support services provide that opportunity as well as providing information and support for the carer.
