Safeguarding

HomelessHub is a partnership between YMCA and hyh, which is covered by the following safeguarding policy.

We are committed to promoting best practice and ensuring that Children, Young People and Adults at Risk are free from harm and abuse. Where harm and abuse is recognised or suspected, we expect staff and volunteers to respond and refer in accordance with our policy and operational procedures.

  1. call the Police on 999 if the concern presents an immediate threat to a person’s safety
  2. call the HomelessHub on 03003 230 130 to report your concerns
