Folder Safeguarding

Safeguarding is about making sure everyone, irrespective of age, is treated with dignity and respect and does not suffer abuse. This even includes unborn children.

This is particularly important for those who are unable to protect themselves from harm and abuse, possibly because of their age, a disability or because they are unwell.

To ensure this, care has to be of high quality in order to prevent abuse happening. It also means there is an effective response if there is evidence or a suspicion of abuse.
