Making Safeguarding Personal

1. Empowerment
People being supported and encouraged to make their own decisions and informed consent.

2. Prevention
It is better to take action before harm occurs.

3. Proportionality
The least intrusive response appropriate to the risk presented.

4. Protection
Support and representation for those in greatest need.

5. Partnership
Local solutions through services working with their communities.
Communities have a part to play in preventing, detecting and reporting neglect and abuse.

6. Accountability
Accountability and transparency in safeguarding practice.
