Covid-19: Information, guidance and resources to support you through the pandemic

Covid-19 homepage
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 topic areas to support learning and understanding of Safeguarding for people in social care work at all levels

The All Wales Basic Safeguarding Training pack

The All Wales Basic Safeguarding Awareness pack has been updated to include the new Wales Safeguarding Procedures.

For further information, please refer to the Wales Safeguarding Procedures and the part 7 statutory guidance in the training.

Please contact us if you have any questions.

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.

The content has evolved to reflect both the changing nature of Safeguarding but also to give clear direction of the work under the Social Services and Well-Being (Wales) Act 2014.

Accreditation and recognition of learning

The All Wales Basic Safeguarding Awareness Pack is recognised as Level 2 Safeguarding Training.

Previous versions of this pack had an accompanying workbook, but this is no longer available, and we suggest using the ‘Safeguarding Individuals’ workbook from the All Wales Induction Framework instead.

We are currently considering how to recognise the learning achieved by those completing this pack. Once we have made a decision, this page will be updated.

Early years case studies

This section includes case studies that specifically relate to early years providers.

Safeguarding and the Act

Further resources, in particular about the Safeguarding requirements in the Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act, can be found on the Information and Learning Hub.
