Managing allegations against employees and volunteers

It is extremely important that any concerns regarding inappropriate behaviour by someone in a Position of Trust in relation to an adult with care and support needs must be acted upon in order to protect the adult(s) from harm.

Examples of people who might be in a Position of Trust are:

  • employees or volunteers who deliver direct care or support
  • managers of the above staff 
  • trustees board members or senior managers of services or organisations that work with adults with care and support needs

Organisations working with adults with care and support needs should have clear policies in place. 

An allegation may relate to a person who works with adults with care and support needs who has:

  • Behaved in a way that has harmed, or may have harmed, an adult with care and support needs;
  • Possibly committed a criminal offence against, or related to, an adult with care and support needs, or
  • Behaved towards an adult with care and support needs in a way that indicates they may pose a risk of harm to them.

The organisation's Safeguarding Lead must be informed as soon as possible and the appropriate actions taken. All safeguarding concerns must be referred to the MASH at MASH@wolverhampton.gov.uk

Any allegation made against a person who works with adults with care and support needs and is employed by the local authority must be referred to the Local Authority Designated Officer using the LADO Referral Form.
