What is Safeguarding?

There are a lot of definitions of what ‘safeguarding’ means but simply put Safeguarding is . . .

“… protecting people’s health, well-being and human rights, and enabling them to live free from harm, abuse and neglect.” – CQC

It is about working together to ensure that people with care and support needs feel safe and are free to make their own choices.
