This document describes the policy of this care service on safeguarding children, for whom the service might have some responsibility. It should be linked to the agency’s main safeguarding of adults policy concerning definitions of abuse and its overall approach to safeguarding. It also should be linked to local children’s safeguarding policies and procedures, which will reflect a commitment to the government’s strategy as described in its current Wales Safeguarding Procedures.
The policy is also written in line with the safeguarding standards (26–31) developed under the Regulated Services (Service Providers and Responsible Individuals) (Wales) Regulations 2017.
The service seeks to comply in all respects with current safeguarding legislation and regulations, as developed by the Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014, particularly its Working Together to Safeguard People guidance.
