Safeguarding is a term that describes the work and processes undertaken to minimise and manage the risks involved in caring for vulnerable children. The Safeguarding Children course was created because, first and foremost, each and every one of us has basic human rights. Chief among these is the right to be healthy, happy and treated well, regardless of race, age, gender or location. When these rights are abused in some way it’s wrong, and it is therefore vital that guidelines, policies and procedures are followed to enable everyone, without exception to live a life in which these basic values and rights are maintained and upheld.

Everyone, regardless of their age, gender, religion, ethnicity or background, has the right to a healthy, happy life. Safeguarding is about minimising and managing the risks to vulnerable individuals. The Safeguarding Children course is aimed at anyone who has a duty of care for or comes into contact with children in their chosen profession.

Although most children are brought up in loving, nurturing environments and grow up to lead happy lives, the subject has to be discussed to protect better those children that need it most.

Once you are able to recognise the signs of possible abuse and know the steps, you should take if you suspect it, you will be better able to protect the children in your care.
