Our policies

The MPS Society adopts best practice across all aspects of its role and activities and is constantly seeking initiatives which add value to its members, supporters and the wider MPS community. The MPS Society is committed to investing in training and development of our employees and treating health and safety a priority. In achieving this the Board of Trustees have developed a wide range of policies that protects our members and their families, volunteers, supporters, employees and the MPS Society as a whole.

Our safeguarding policy

The MPS Society recognises the importance of its support services to families, children, young people and adults and its particular responsibilities to safeguard and promote the welfare of those who are vulnerable or at risk. The welfare of a child, young person or adult at risk is paramount whatever their age, culture, disability, gender, language, racial origin, religion or sexual identity and they have the right to be protected from abuse.

 

The MPS Society recognises that some children, young people and adults at risk are additionally vulnerable to abuse due to their disability, level of dependence, communication needs or other issues. The MPS Society will always take extra care to look out for signs of abuse in this group of individuals and ensure that their needs are not neglected due to difficulties they may have in communicating signs of abuse. All suspicions and allegations of abuse will be taken seriously and responded to immediately and the appropriate action taken. Our safeguarding policy is available on request.

 

Copies of our vulnerable supporter policy, anti-bribery and others are available on request.

We are the only registered charity providing professional support to individuals and families affected by MPS, Fabry or a related disease in the UK.
