INSPIRE Foundation Safeguarding Policy
The INSPIRE Foundation is a charity which recognises the need to safeguard all interested parties with whom it comes into contact. These include Principal Investigators and other beneficiaries participating in research projects, members of the governing bodies (Patrons, Trustees and members of the National Scientific Committee) and any volunteers helping either with research projects or fundraising events.
It is a condition of our national research programme, that INSPIRE funded project teams have a sponsor in place as defined by the Department of Health’s Research Governance which includes safeguarding and care of vulnerable patients.
The charity will protect any such individual through its Disputes Policy, as laid out at Paragraph 11 of the Constitution.*
