What is Safeguarding?
Safeguarding is a process to ensure the safety and wellbeing of children and vulnerable people.
A child is a person under the age of eighteen.
A vulnerable person is a person ‘who is or may need community care services by reason of mental or other disability, age or illness; and who is or may be unable to take care of him or herself, or unable to protect him or herself against significant harm or exploitation’.
