Safeguarding

Safeguarding is a term used to denote procedures implemented to protect the well-being, health and human rights of potentially vulnerable persons. Its aim is allow people, especially children, young people and vulnerable adults, to live free from harm, neglect and abuse.

Any child can be hurt, put at risk of harm or abused, regardless of age, ethnicity, gender or religion. The UK government has enacted legislation and published guidance to protect children from maltreatment, prevent the impairment of children's health or development, ensure children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care, and enable children and young people to have the best outcomes. Responsibility for these aims is deemed to lie with everyone who comes into contact with children and families.

Adults in need of safeguarding help are generally elderly and frail, and either live alone or in care homes with little support from family members. They may have mental health issues, a physical disability or learning difficulties. Professional carers ideally focus on empowerment, protection, prevention, proportionate responses, partnership and accountability to safeguard vulnerable adults.

Kaim Todner Ltd has a proven track record in conducting safeguarding reviews on behalf of commercial organisations and making suitable recommendations for improvement where appropriate.

Should your organisation require a safeguarding review, please contact Karen Todner or Claire Anderson on 020 7842 0650 or email solicitors@kaimtodner.com.
