When writing a safeguarding policy, key areas to consider are:

  • the purpose of the policy,
  • defining safeguarding, abuse and types of abuse,
  • account for who could be an abuser,
  • information sharing and data protection,
  • assessing and responding to risks,
  • reporting a safeguarding issue.
