The information provided on the Central Bedfordshire Council Network is for general guidance only and the Council is not responsible for the contents or reliability of any websites to which this site is linked.

Whilst Central Bedfordshire Council takes reasonable steps to ensure that any external website that we provide links to or any information provided by third parties is not offensive or defamatory, we are unable to take responsibility for the content of any such information or website maintained outside of the Council.

Anyone seeking to use or access this information does so at their own risk and should make all appropriate enquiries about fitness for purpose and suitability to meet their needs. Checks should be carried out by anyone using third party provider services to make sure that the service has adequate policies and procedures in place, including the safeguarding and wellbeing of adults with care and support needs, children and young people.  You may also want to check that a service has appropriate insurance in place and Disclosure and Barring checks where necessary. 

The purchase of services from any provider directly or indirectly accessed through information on the Central Bedfordshire Council website does not create any legal relationship or contract between you and Central Bedfordshire Council.  Central Bedfordshire Council excludes, to the fullest extent permitted by law, all liability including, (without limitation), any loss, (financial or otherwise) or damage resulting directly or indirectly from any such reliance.
