What reassurance will Nuffield Health give to staff and parents (e.g. DBS/CRB checks) to ensure the safety and wellbeing of the children?
All Nuffield Health staff involved with the pilot have undergone mandatory training in key areas of expertise, including safeguarding and working with young adults, and are all DBS checked, to ensure the safety and wellbeing of the children participating in any initiatives.
Appropriate sign-posting protocol will be followed should there be any disclosures or concerns that arise from our conversations with young people. However, these sessions are designed to be a ‘light-touch’ and engaging rather than heavily focused on identifying mental health issues or generating referrals. Any data collected on health behaviours will be anonymous.
