Safeguarding at Macmillan

Macmillan Cancer Support is committed to safeguarding the well-being of all service users, employees and volunteers who are involved in or affected by its work.

  • face to face
  • on the telephone
  • during volunteering and fundraising
  • on the Online Community
  • on social media - Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat.

All children and adults, regardless of age, disability, gender, racial heritage, religious belief, sexual orientation or identity, have the right to equal protection from all types of harm or abuse and the right to be treated with respect and dignity.

All employees and volunteers have a duty to prevent the abuse of children and adults and report any safeguarding concerns.
