This page explains what the Regional safeguarding Boards are, and what they do.
The Regional Safeguarding Boards operate under Part 7 of the Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014.
This framework enables the Regional Safeguarding Boards to meet their legislative responsibilities under the Social Services and Well-being Act (Wales) 2014.
The Boards will:
- adopt the standards and include them in regional safeguarding policies and processes
- reinforce how the standards should be used to design, develop, deliver, monitor and evaluate training, learning and development
- encourage use of the standards and framework to set clear expectations for providers of training, learning and development
- be responsible for identifying appropriate, confident, qualified and experienced trainers to provide the learning programmes.
You can find a full list of the Boards’ functions on the GOV.UK website: Safeguarding Boards (Functions and Procedures) (Wales) Regulations 2015.
