Question and answer
Identify national policies and local systems that relate to safeguarding and protection from abuse.
Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility and all staff who, during the course of their employment have direct or indirect contact with children and families and vulnerable adults, [ or who have access to information about them, have a responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and vulnerable adults. There is a duty on organisations
to make appropriate arrangements to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and vulnerable adults. Also government guidance makes it clear that it is a shared responsibility, and depends upon effective joint working between agencies and professionals that have different roles and expertise. The statutory inquiry into the death of Victoria Climbié and the first joint Chief Inspectors report on safeguarding children highlighted the lack of priority status given to safeguarding. The government response to these findings included the Green Paper Every Child Matters and the provisions in the Children Act 2004. Section 11 of the Children Act 2004 places a duty on all agencies to make arrangements to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. The Health and Social Care Act 2008 also places statutory duties on organisations and individuals. Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults is not just the province of those working directly with these groups of people. ]
