Safeguarding concerns the wide-ranging measures taken to protect groups such as children, young people, and vulnerable adults from abuse, harm and neglect. Naturally, different groups have diverse needs; however, these groups are the most at risk as they have limited resources to keep themselves safe.
Anyone who works with or has responsibility for these groups needs to understand their role in safeguarding. For all organisations involved in health and social care, safeguarding is a legal obligation. Core legislation includes The Children Act 1989, the Children and Social Work Act 2017, the Care Act 2014, and the Safeguarding Vulnerable Groups Act 2006. The Data Protection Act and other legislation are also crucial.
