Line of sight

This key information outlines how to put into action the line of sight section of the Working with Children and Young People in Residences policy.

Children and young people in a residence have a right to:

  • express their views
  • participate safely in the life of their residence
  • have private conversations.

It is also very important that we know children and young people are safe in our residences. We need to know they are not being bullied and that they are not planning actions that may threaten themselves, other young people, staff or the residence.
