What is Safeguarding?
“Safeguarding” refers to measures designed to protect the health, wellbeing and human rights of individuals. These measures allow children, young people and vulnerable adults to live free from abuse, harm and neglect. Every organisation, small group and individual should be aware of their responsibility in work and society.
