This week (20-24 November) marks Safeguarding Adults Week. This year’s theme is looking at organisation’s response. It aims to raise awareness of important safeguarding issues and encourage people to feel confident in recognising the signs of abuse and reporting their concerns.
What is safeguarding?
Safeguarding means protecting someone's right to live in safety, free from abuse and neglect.
It’s about people and organisations coming together, to stop and prevent the risk of abuse and neglect.
It’s about empowering people to make informed decisions about their lives and having regards to their views and wishes.
We work in partnership with our local authority partners, alongside our policies and procedures for children and adults at risk.
We’re committed to safeguarding the wellbeing of residents living in our homes and have a duty to report all instances of abuse or suspected abuse. Our approach to fulfilling our safeguarding obligation is underpinned by our heart values.
Everyone has the right to live safely.
Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility, but did you know the following facts?
