What is safeguarding?

Safeguarding means protecting people's health, well-being and human rights, and enabling them to live free from harm, abuse and neglect. It's fundamental to high-quality health and social care.

What does safeguarding mean for people who use care services?

Safeguarding children and promoting their welfare includes:

  • Protecting them from maltreatment or things that are bad for their health or development.
  • Making sure they grow up in circumstances that allow safe and effective care.

Safeguarding adults includes:

  • Protecting their rights to live in safety, free from abuse and neglect.
  • People and organisations working together to prevent the risk of abuse or neglect, and to stop them from happening.
  • Making sure people's well-being is promoted, taking their views, wishes, feelings and beliefs into account.
