What is safeguarding?

Safeguarding means protecting children, young people and vulnerable adults from abuse and neglect. This includes physical, sexual, emotional and financial abuse, as well as discrimination, modern slavery and self-neglect.

We work alongside our partners in social care, healthcare and the police to keep customers who live in our homes or use our services safe and support them to make their own choices.
