Principles of Safeguarding
Safeguarding refers to how we can protect children, young people and vulnerable adults from abuse or neglect by the actions, or lack of actions of another person. To be able to protect and safeguard children, young people and vulnerable adults from abuse we need to learn how to identify vulnerable individuals and how to take necessary steps to avoid and stop abuse and neglect.
