Life is full of surprises, and not always good ones – for that reason we have a dedicated team of designated safeguarding officers to provide support for any unforeseen circumstances that may occur during your time at Remit.

The Remit Group aims to create and maintain a safe learning environment where all learners, colleagues and partners feel safe, secure and valued and know they will be listened to and taken seriously. Everyone has a role to play in safeguarding young people, ‘at risk’ adults and maintaining a secure and supportive environment. This includes protection from any physical, on-line or extremist threat or action.

For any support or help that is not covered by contact with your regular Remit staff member or the learning support team the safeguarding team are here to help.  Anyone who has any concerns for their own, or someone else’s wellbeing can contact one of our specially trained safeguarding team on our dedicated Hotline 0115 975 9554 or email safeguarding@remit.co.uk
