The primary focus for safeguarding is to promote well-being and prevent abuse and neglect happening in the first place, ensure the safety and well-being of anyone who has been subject to abuse or neglect, take action against those responsible and learn lessons and make changes; which will be achieved by putting the person at the very centre. Safeguarding is everybody’s business and with the new Care Act 2014 this can only strengthen the protection of vulnerable adults within Croydon.
