Safeguarding children means protecting them from abuse and keeping them safe from harm. It means promoting their health and welfare, helping them to grow up in a safe and supportive environment.


All organisations that work with or come into contact with children should have adequate safeguarding policies and procedures to ensure that every child, regardless of their age, disability, gender reassignment, race, religion or belief, sex, or sexual orientation, has a right to equal protection from harm.


Setting up and following good safeguarding policies and procedures means children are safe from adults and other children who might pose a risk. This includes voluntary and community organisations, faith groups, private sector providers, as well as schools, hospitals and sports clubs.

    The beauty of safeguarding, which can be overlooked, is that by creating a trusting relationship with a child, they’ll likely choose you. But the responsibility doesn’t just lie with you, you have ample support around you - this is a multi-agency effort. Within your organisation, you’ve got your colleagues, your Designated Safeguarding Leads and your managers and you also have those outside of your organisation. This section will look at the legislation, children's legal rights, policies & procedures and your safeguarding responsibilities.
