The Essential Guide to Safeguarding Legislation

Prepared by Sarah Henry Safeguarding, Independent Safeguarding Consultant

In its simplest terms, Safeguarding means preventing harm and abuse to children and adults at risk.  Adults and children can be harmed in different ways.  And the effects are devastating, traumatic and often lifelong.

This guide is designed to give you, as a practitioner or volunteer, the knowledge and confidence to know what to do when something is wrong and to know what you must do about it.

Combining HM Government legislation and Sarah’s own experience as a Safeguarding Practitioner, this guide is a handy and easy to read aide-memoire for practitioners and volunteers.
