Failure to provide such support and assistance may result in the Company refusing to deliver services and no refund will be given.

Where the service users are considered to be vulnerable or to have special needs or learning requirements then the customer will provide staff at the levels to supervise their service users in accordance with their policies and individual care plans. At no time will it be acceptable for customers’ agents and staff to leave service users with agents of the Company and the company and its agents will not accept responsibility for service users.
7.5. Agents of the company have the right to deliver services without fear of physical or verbal abuse, threat or concern. It shall be for the Company or their agents at their absolute discretion to decide whether a venue, or environment, is a suitable and appropriate place to deliver services and, whether through actions, behaviour or other indication, a service user or service users should take part in any service delivery or should be removed. If service users are to be removed, the agents will require the customer to remove the service user. The agents of the Company shall at their absolute discretion determine whether the service delivery should be cancelled, postponed or terminated. If, in the Company’s opinion, the cancellation, postponement or termination was reasonably foreseeable or, as a result of the behaviour or other indication from a service user or service users then no refund of the service delivery cost shall be given. If you are in any doubt as to whether the venue, environment, or a service user will be able to take part in service delivery you must seek guidance from the Company prior to the booking of the service, as any cancellations will be dealt with under the cancellation policy set out above and failure to seek guidance will automatically deem the refusal reasonably foreseeable.
7.6 Agents delivering the service on behalf of the Company are required to undertake a health and safety assessment of the environment and, service users prior to and, throughout the service delivery. It will be for these agents at their absolute discretion to decide whether a venue, environment or activity is suitable in the circumstances and, they may at their absolute discretion alter, amend or cancel a service delivery in the interests of health and safety of the service user, themselves or others without refund.
