Policy Statement

This policy shows how the care service deals with the more social forms of abuse that are always likely to occur in group — including families — and community living arrangements as important dimensions of its overall safeguarding strategy. It reflects the care service’s commitment to ensure that its service users are fully safeguarded from all forms of abuse.

The policy is written in line with the safeguarding standards (26–31) developed under the Regulated Services (Service Providers and Responsible Individuals) (Wales) Regulations 2017.

The service also seeks to comply in all respects with current safeguarding legislation and regulations, as developed by the Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014. It seeks to work in line with local authority safeguarding adults’ policies and procedures and guidance from the Care Inspectorate Wales (CIW). It recognises the importance of national guidance such as that contained in In Safe Hands and subsequent guidance issued by the Welsh Government.
