Safeguarding is the action that is taken to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm.

Safeguarding means:

  • ensuring children grow up with the provision of safe and effective care
  • taking action to enable all children and young people to have the best outcomes.

Safeguarding children and child protection guidance and legislation applies to all children up to the age of 18.
