Question and answer
Q: explain the roles of different agencies in safeguarding and protecting individuals from abuse
A: Children and young people safeguarded from harm (maltreatment) and able to achieve their optimal outcomes throughout childhood, [ their teenage years and into adulthood. [ [ Children and young people growing up in circumstances where they are safe and supported. Standard: All agencies work to prevent children suffering harm and to promote their welfare, provide them with the services they
require to address their identified needs and safeguard children who are being or who are likely to be harmed. Markers of Good Practice 1. At a strategic level, agencies and professionals work in partnership with each other, service users and members of the local community, in accordance with their agreed ACPC (or its successor, the Local Safeguarding Children Board) annual business plan. 2. Agencies develop, implement and evaluate the effectiveness of policies, procedures and practices for safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people including those concerned with the recruitment and management of staff. 3. Where there are concerns about a child's welfare, an assessment is undertaken in accordance with the Framework for the Assessment of Children in Need (1) and their Families and plans are made, implemented and reviewed which result in each child achieving their optimal outcomes. Children and families are actively involved in these processes unless this would result in harm to the child. 4. All staff are alert to the increased likelihood of harm being suffered by disabled children, or by those children who are living in special circumstances, whose needs may not be recognised by staff in statutory agencies and who, therefore, are 'invisible' to the system. 5. A broad range of integrated, evidence-based services are available to prevent children and young people from being harmed, safeguarding those who are likely to suffer significant harm, and address the needs of those children who have suffered harm, at the same time, providing support to their parents/carers. ]

User: identify reports into serious failures to protect individuals from abuse.

Weegy: In the U.S. there are supposed to be yearly unannounced visits to inspect nursing homes. [ But usually word leaks out ahead of time when they are coming. As is the nature of bureaucracies everywhere, there are often family connections between those running nursing homes and those on the regulatory side. Protecting helpless nursing home patents from neglect and abuse gets more lip service than action and a lot of regulations are ignored. As long as most of the kids and grand-kids of the patients in those homes don't really care, nothing will change. They few who do care are easily ignored. ]
