Safeguarding is the term used in the United Kingdom and Ireland to denote measures to protect the health, well-being and human rights of individuals, which allow people, especially children, young people and vunerable adults to live free from abuse, harm and neglect.
Any child can be hurt, put at risk of harm or abused, regardless of age, ethnicity, gender or religon. The UK government has enacted legislation and published guidance to protect children from maltreatment, prevent the impairment of children’s health or development, ensure children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care, and enable children and young people to have the best outcomes. Responsibility for these aims is deemed to lie with everyone who comes into contact with children and families.
Adults in need of safeguarding help are generally elderly and frail, and either live alone or in care homes with little support from family members. They may have mental health issues, a physical disabilty or learning difficuties. Professional carers ideally focus on empowerment, protection, prevention, proportionate responses, partnership and accountability to safeguard vulnerable adults.
