Safeguarding

Safeguarding means protecting people’s health, wellbeing and human rights to enable them to live free from harm, abuse and neglect. Safeguarding can also be defined as protecting such groups from physical, emotional or sexual abuse or neglect.

Those most in need of protection are:

  • children
  • young people
  • vulnerable adults whose circumstances make them vulnerable
