The UK government created six Safeguarding principles to help protect vulnerable adults and children, these principles are:
Safer Recruitment training covers areas like shortlisting potential candidates for interviews, DBS checks, dealing with any concerns raised during the vetting process, risk assessment and how to manage allegations of inappropriate behaviour.
Safeguarding is the policies and procedures that organisations and people have in place to keep children safe and promote their wellbeing, everything from security of buildings to staff recruitment. Child protection is the term used to describe the activity that is undertaken to protect specific children who are suffering or likely to suffer harm.
Procedures and systems provide clear guidance on what to do in various circumstances; they clarify roles and responsibilities. Child protection procedures should be linked with the Local Safeguarding Children’s Board’s own procedures (or the All Wales Child Protection Procedures).
