What is safeguarding?
Safeguarding is the action that organisations take to protect children and vulnerable or protected adults (vulnerable beneficiaries) from harm including emotional, physical, sexual, neglect or financial harm. Charities working with vulnerable beneficiaries must do all they can to keep them safe and protected from harm ensuring appropriate policies, practices and procedures are in place and adhered to.
