Group B practitioners work with people in a group setting or on a one-to-one basis.
This group includes practitioners who are or aren't registered or regulated, and volunteers.
They’ll have a particular responsibility to the people they work with.
They’ll need a higher level of knowledge than people in group A because of how closely they work with people.
The people they work with may or may not have safeguarding concerns.
If there are safeguarding concerns, there’ll be a clear line of reporting in the organisation.
They’ll be aware of their responsibility to report concerns, both internally and directly to social services.
- I am a key part of the safeguarding process.
- I know when, how and who to report to.
- I will make sure the individual’s voice is heard.
According to the standards, people in group B should know:
- legislation, national policies, and codes of conduct and professional practice about safeguarding
- how to work in ways that safeguard people from abuse, harm and neglect
- the factors, situations and actions that could lead or contribute to abuse, harm or neglect
- how to report, respond and record concerns or allegations related to safeguarding.
