Our aim is to help everyone explore the story of how monarchs and people have shaped society, in some of the greatest palaces ever built.
This welcome to 'everyone' includes children, young people and vulnerable adults. We want their experience of engaging with our palaces and their stories to be meaningful, enjoyable and safe.
The safeguarding policies and procedures provide a framework for operating a competent safeguarding system and strengthen safeguarding practice within Historic Royal Palaces.
They are designed to work in tandem with other policies and procedures, for example those relating to operations, HR and information systems.
