What is safeguarding?
Safeguarding is making sure that we keep all vulnerable people (this could be Disabled Adults or Children/Young People) we work with safe from abuse and neglect.
Abuse is when somebody treats you badly or hurts you. Any kind of abuse is always wrong and should not happen.
Neglect is when the people that are meant to look after you aren’t doing their job properly. This could be not giving you enough food, not giving you clean clothes or letting you be dirty or not giving you the medication that you might need.
If you do not feel safe or are worried about somebody you know you can contact WECIL.
WECIL’s Safeguarding Process
We have 2 safeguarding leads who are responsible for everything involved in Safeguarding at WECIL. We have one lead for Adults and one lead for Children and Young People.
