The Grimsby Institute Group recognises that it has statutory and moral duty towards safeguarding the welfare of its learners - they should feel safe and will be supported if any concerns are raised. Learners can talk to one of the team about such things as bullying, accommodation problems, abuse (in any of its forms), self harm, or whatever may be a concern. They are there to help and can be approached easily.
