Safeguarding is a term used in the United Kingdom and Ireland to denote measures to protect the health, well-being and human rights of individuals, which allow people — especially children, young people and vulnerable adults — to live free from abuse, harm and neglect.

There’s more information about safeguarding on the North Yorkshire County Council website.

Resources applicable for North Yorkshire are also available on the former NHS Scarborough and Ryedale CCG website.
