What is safeguarding?
Safeguarding means protecting people’s health, well-being and human rights and enabling them to live free from harm, abuse and neglect. By people, we mean adults, the elderly and children.
When should I raise safeguarding concerns?
Abuse and neglect can be difficult to detect, but here are some possible warning signs.
- Badly-maintained property
- Poor living conditions
- No gas or electricity
- Unauthorised persons staying in the property
