Safeguarding

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.
