Safeguarding means protecting people's health, well-being and human rights, and enabling them to live free from harm, abuse and neglect
Safeguarding is EVERYONE'S responsibility. It's fundamental to high-quality health and social care. Organisations who work with children, young people or adults at risk have a legislative and moral safeguarding obligation. You can easily check our wide range of Safeguarding Courses for full details of the courses we offer and what each one does.
Safeguarding for children is a term which is broader than 'child protection' and relates to the action taken to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm. Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility.
Safeguarding is defined in Working together to safeguard children 2015 as:
- taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes
- preventing impairment of children’s health and development
- protecting children from maltreatment
- ensuring that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care
As defined in the care act 2014 Safeguarding adults includes:
- Working with partners such as the police, local councils, health agencies, other regulators and government departments.
- Taking part in multi-agency children's safeguarding inspections to get a picture of children's and young people's experiences and how well they are being safeguarded.
- Protecting their rights to live in safety, free from abuse and neglect.
- People and organisations working together to prevent the risk of abuse or neglect, and to stop them from happening.
- Making sure people's well-being is promoted, taking their views, wishes, feelings and beliefs into account.
There are significant differences in the laws and policies that shape how we safeguard children and how we safeguard adults. The legal framework to protect children is contained in Working together to safeguard children (2015). For adults, the Care Act 2014 gave safeguarding adults a legal framework for the first time. However, the overarching objective for both is to enable children and adults to live a life free from abuse or neglect. If you work with children, young people or adults 'at risk', you have a legal duty to ensure that they are protected from harm.
Local safeguarding children’s boards (LSCBs), safeguarding adults boards (SABs) and their equivalents outside of England, are responsible for improving the quality of safeguarding practice in their areas. However, every organisation and person who comes into contact with a child or adult has a responsibility and a role to play to help keep children and adults safe.
Organisations and individuals can find it hard to navigate their way through their safeguarding responsibilities. At Taye Training we can support your process, we have over 30 years experience operationally and strategically and in response to customers requests have developed audit tools, policy templates and a variety of training courses.
To achieve effective safeguarding you must develop an open, transparent and honest culture within an organisation, train staff/volunteers to be aware of the indicators of abuse and empower them to respond appropriately. These objectives are complicated and multifaceted but completely achievable. Each and every safeguarding decision we make impacts a person’s life, therefore it is not a responsibility that we can take lightly.
At Taye Training we challenge personal opinions, reform understanding and teach the principles for effective safeguarding. All our safeguarding training is written with consideration to a variety of standards. Including but not limited to care quality commission, section 11 audits, Ofsted, quality assessment framework and the intercollegiate document.
All courses can be tailored to an organisations customer group, a specific at risk group or to focus on common issues.
