Safeguarding

Safeguarding Children

Under the 1989 and the 2004 Children Acts a child or young person is anyone under the age of 18 years.


Safeguarding children is the action we take to promote the welfare of all children and protect them from harm. The Practice recognises that all children have a right to protection from abuse and neglect and the Practice accepts its responsibility to safeguard the welfare of all children with whom staff may come into contact.

Please be aware that any discussions and/or procedures of an intimate nature cannot be performed in front of children for safeguarding reasons.

 

Safeguarding Adults

 

WHAT IS AN ADULT AT RISK?
The definition is wide, however no secrets guidance defines an adult at risk as anyone over the age of 18 years who may be unable to protect themselves from abuse, harm or exploitation, which may be by reason of illness, age, mental illness, disability or other types of physical or mental impairment.

 

Those at risk may live alone, be dependent on others (care homes/hospitals/day centres etc.), elderly, socially isolated or people in their own homes.
