SAFEGUARDING

Safeguarding Adults

Safeguarding means protecting an adult’s right to live in safety, free from abuse and neglect. It is about working together to support people to make decisions about the risks they face in their own lives, and protecting those who lack the capacity to make these decisions.

Safeguarding Children and Young People

Safeguarding means protecting a child’s right to live in safety, free from abuse and neglect. It is about working together to support children and young people to make decisions about the risks they face in their own lives, and protecting those who lack the capacity to make these decisions.

We all share responsibility for safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people, and adults. Whether as a parent or family member; a friend or neighbour; a teacher or carer; or as a paid or volunteer worker.

Manchester Carers Centre has Safeguarding policies and procedures in relation adults, young people, and children. These are available upon request via admin@manchestercarers.org.uk We are committed to ensuring the safety and wellbeing of children, young people, and adults.
