Our Mission:

'Working with local communities to improve wellbeing and reduce inequalities.'

Vision: 'Horizons strives to develop services that provide the right help and support to enable people to thrive.'

Safeguarding

We believe that our service users are entitled to an experience that takes place in a safe, healthy and supportive environment. In addition, we consider that a safe setting is essential to maximise an individuals’ experience and achievement. A copy of our Safeguarding policy is available on request.

The Prevent Duty

From 1 July 2015, Horizons Hub has a legal duty to report concerns about any service user or staff member who may be being radicalised or who may be radicalising others. Reporting a concern does not automatically criminalise the person reported. If s/he is being radicalised, they may be supported by a range of partner organisations through the Channel programme and will not have a criminal record.

Health and Safety

Horizons Hub always takes a sensible and proportionate stance on Health and Safety; focusing on real risk with potential to cause harm rather than wasting resources on trivial matters and unnecessary paperwork. Having said that, we take our duty of care very seriously.
