Safeguarding

Myeloma UK Commitment to Safeguarding 

At Myeloma UK we are committed to safeguarding the wellbeing of everyone we come into contact with. This includes people affected by Myeloma (and other related conditions), employees, volunteers, donors, and anyone involved in our diverse range of activities and services. Safeguarding is about making sure everyone is treated with dignity and respect and does not suffer abuse. Everyone has the right to equal protection.

Myeloma UK has a comprehensive safeguarding policy and procedures (including training) to ensure that risks are minimised everyone is aware of their duties and responsibilities and are clear how to identify, report and respond to incidents or concerns.

Our Safeguarding Reference Group (which includes our Safeguarding Lead, Executive Leadership Team Sponsor, and other key colleagues from across the organisation) meet regularly to review any concerns and feedback, to review policies and procedures in line with best practice and regulations and to ensure safeguarding remains a priority. Safeguarding reports are reviewed by the Patient Services Committee and discussed at the Board. 

How to report a safeguarding concern or incident

Employees, volunteers and members of the public can report any concerns or incidents by emailing: safeguarding@myeloma.org.uk
