Safeguarding children means taking action to promote the welfare of children and to protect them from harm. Safeguarding is everyone's responsibility. Safeguarding includes:
● Protecting children from maltreatment;
● Preventing impairment of children’s mental health and physical 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
Child Protection is a term that outlines the legal process once a child has been deemed to require social care intervention. Are you a Parent or Guardian? Protecting children is your responsibility too.
