What is Safguarding

Safeguarding is the action that is taken to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm.


Safeguarding means:


  • protecting children from abuse and maltreatment
  • preventing harm to children’s health or development
  • ensuring children grow up with the provision of safe and effective care
  • taking action to enable all children and young people to have the best outcomes.


Safeguarding children and child protection guidance and legislation applies to all children up to the age of 18.

What is Child Protection

Child Protection is part of Safeguarding and promoting welfare. It refers to the activity that is undertaken to protect specific children who are suffering, or are likely to suffer, significant harm.
