What Is My Role In Safeguarding?

Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility. Every organisation, small group and individual should be aware of their responsibility, in work and society.

As part of Safeguarding Adults Week, we want to encourage you to enhance your knowledge about safeguarding and consider your role.

Safeguarding refers to measures designed to protect the health, wellbeing and human rights of individuals. These measures allow children, young people and adults at risk to live free from abuse, harm and neglect.

How can you make a difference?

  • Learn about the different types of harm and abuse
  • Discover how to spot the signs
  • Record any concerns you have
  • Report your concerns to your Local Authorities Safeguarding Board

Complete our Safeguarding Adults Checklist to develop your current understanding of safeguarding, and receive free bespoke resources to enhance your practice.

Take a look at our training events to learn more about safeguarding.

Individuals and organisations are responsible for working together to protect an adult’s right to live free from abuse & neglect.

Never assume safeguarding is someone else’s responsibility.
