Safeguarding

Here at Red Kite we believe that having a life that is free from harm and abuse is a fundamental right for everyone. We're committed to safeguarding children and adults at risk of abuse to help ensure their safety and well-being.

  • We’ve trained our staff to be alert to signs of abuse and they follow a prompt and effective reporting procedure should abuse be suspected, disclosed or discovered. 

  • We also work closely with our partner contractors so they too can spot signs of abuse which they report to our team quickly.

Useful contacts

As a tenant, leaseholder, family member or member of our wider community, you may have concerns, and we want you to know what to do to report your concerns.
