Safeguards Resources

CLBC believes the people we support and their families have the right to pursue lives with connection in communities of belonging. This include feeling safe from harm where they live, go to school, work and play. This includes physical harm, emotional harm or financial harm.

One important way to make sure that people are safe from harm is through safeguards. Safeguards are actions that are done on purpose to help reduce the risk that someone will be harmed.

In this section of the site you can find CLBC resources focused on safeguards.
