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

We are planning to update the All Wales Basic Awareness pack to include the new Wales Safeguarding Procedures.

If you use the pack to deliver training before the updated version is ready, please make sure you follow and 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.

Who should use the pack?

Those who are:

  • new to Safeguarding
  • looking to refresh their Safeguarding knowledge
  • facilitating in-house Safeguarding training
  • working or volunteering in the private, public or third sector
  • who are be in contact with children, young people or adults at risk.

How will the pack help you?

This pack will help you:

  • recognise different types of harm
  • recognise abuse and neglect
  • understand how individuals can be protected.
