To help stop and prevent any harm, abuse or exploitation, at Paul’s Place we have safeguarding procedures to protect our members, volunteers and staff. This year, from Monday 20 to 24 November 2023, Safeguarding Adults Week asks, “what does welfare and wellbeing mean to us.”

Read how our Music Therapy sessions can help members address safeguarding concerns.

Therapy through Music.

At Paul’s Place we’re on a mission to enhance the lives of physically disabled adults.

Every Wednesday, our members enjoy music therapy, where they can express themselves. It’s a chance to communicate through music, when perhaps they can’t find the words. It helps our members to tell and share their personal stories and experiences with each other.

Therefore, at music therapy, safeguarding concerns has been spotted and brought to our attention, which gives us a chance to help our members further.

We have an in-house social worker at Paul’s Place, who manages our safeguarding policies and actions. And we work together to make sure our members are protected from harm, abuse and from being exploited, which can impact their physical and mental wellbeing.

Safeguarding is everyone’s business. So, we’re extremely grateful to the University of the West of England (UWE) for our Music Therapy sessions every Wednesday, which can highlight any safeguarding concerns to us.

Our life changing work relies on your support and donations. From as little as £5 a month can make a big difference for physically disabled adults in South Gloucestershire, Bristol and B&NES
