Safeguarding

Safeguarding is about protecting children and adults from abuse or neglect and educating those around them to recognise the signs and dangers. There is a wide range of specific topic areas to support learning and understanding for people in social care work at all levels.

The All Wales Basic Safeguarding Training pack

This pack supports all workers in social care, the third sector and many other roles working with children or adults at risk. The pack aims to provide a consistent message of Safeguarding responsibilities across Wales allowing those who deliver Safeguarding training to tailor the delivery of the training depending on learner needs.
