Service Description

ABOUT THIS COURSE 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.
