Safeguarding is about protecting vulnerable people from harm, by putting their safety and well-being at the heart of decision-making.

Many organisations will have safeguarding responsibilities, and it is important they understand how to execute these duties. This interactive resource aims to answer questions about safeguarding – from how to identify signs of abuse or neglect, to how to encourage those within your organisation to report safeguarding concerns. It will also include sector-specific guidance where relevant. We will regularly be adding new materials in order to create your complete guide to safeguarding.
