The University of the Highlands and Islands and Academic Partners operate a system of named Safeguarding Leads, with one in each institution. An up-to-date list of Safeguarding Leads and local Safeguarding Leads and Deputies can be found below. The Safeguarding Leads and other key staff make up the Safeguarding Group. The Group meets twice a year normally, or more regularly when the Safeguarding Policy and/or Procedures require to be updated.
We use a single policy and set of procedures which is locally approved by relevant bodies and contains contextualised information specific to the University or Academic Partner. Please contact the relevant Safeguarding Lead for a copy of the local policy or procedures.
