Safeguarding

Safeguarding means protecting a person’s right to live in safety, free from abuse and neglect.

Legislation such as the Care Act means you need to understand and develop your workforce in order to prevent abuse, and to recognise and respond effectively in order to safeguard adults at risk and improve outcomes for people who need care and support.

Safeguarding children and child protection guidance and legislation applies to all children up to the age of 18.
