Basic Safeguarding Awareness

Some dangers are easy to spot, but others are less obvious. Safeguarding is about taking responsibility for protecting the health, well-being and human rights of people who might be vulnerable to abuse. Everyone needs to be aware of the risks of abuse and know how to respond to the warning signs. Abuse can happen to anyone. However, some people are more at risk than others. If your work or volunteer activity brings you into contact with children or vulnerable adults it’s really important to learn how to safeguard them from harm.

Learning outcomes:
  • Explain what is meant by abuse
  • Identify factors that put people at high risk of abuse
  • Recognise key safeguarding principles for protecting people from harm
