Every workplace has a legal responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of children & vulnerable adults. 


Safeguarding means:

  • Protecting children from abuse and maltreatment.

  • Preventing harm to children's health or development.

  • Ensuring children grow up with the provision of safe and effective care.

  • Taking action to enable all children and young people to have the best outcomes.
