What is Safeguarding

Safeguarding children is the action we take to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm. Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility. Every single person who comes into contact with children and families has a role to play.

Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is:

  • Protecting children from maltreatment

  • Preventing impairment of children's health or development

  • Ensuring that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care

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