2 The What and Why of Safeguarding?  Children: The Children Act 2004 (Section 11 guidance)/Working Together to Safeguard Children (2013): protecting children from maltreatment; preventing impairment of children's health or development; ensuring that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes.

3 The What and Why of Safeguarding?  Adults: Safeguarding Adults: The role of Health Service Practitioners (DOH 2011) states  “Safeguarding adults covers a spectrum of activity from prevention through to multi agency responses where harm and abuse occurs. Multi agency procedures apply where there is concern of neglect, harm or abuse to a patient defined under No Secrets guidance as ‘vulnerable’.  Safeguarding adults is an integral part of patient care. Duties to safeguard patients are required by professional regulators, service regulators and supported in law. “

4 Defined by the Department of Health (2000) as a person aged 18 years or older:  “ who is or may be in need of community care services by reason of mental or other disability, age or illness; and who is or may be unable to take care of him or herself, or unable to protect him or herself against significant harm or exploitation”. Adults at Risk

5 Categories of abuse  Both Children and adults – Physical abuse: bite, scalds, punch, slap – Sexual abuse: penetration, inappropriate touching, exposure to/involvement in pornography – Neglect: of physical, emotional, health needs, education, stimulation – Emotional abuse: intimidation, lack of warmth, humiliation will usually occur in conjunction with other forms of abuse
