Everyone has a right to be safe, no matter who they are or what their circumstances. Safeguarding is about protecting children, young people and vulnerable adults from abuse or neglect. We are all responsible for the safety of the most vulnerable members of our society.
There are a number of different types of abuse including:
- Physical or emotional: including hitting, slapping, kicking, restraining, pushing, burning, bullying.
- Sexual: including rape, unwanted advances, inappropriate language or dressing.
- Psychological: including humiliation, verbal abuse, isolation, intimidation.
- Financial and Material: including theft, fraud, possession or benefits.
- Discriminatory: including discrimination on the grounds of gender, age religion, race, disability, nationality, and sexuality.
- Neglect and acts of omission: including under or over use of medication, inappropriate dressing, lack of food, drink or heat.
- Lack of care, ignoring apparent abuse of others.
