What is and isn’t Safeguarding?

This is a question asked frequently by profesionals and volunteers alike.

To illustrate where and why St.Helens Safeguarding procedures apply, or not, depending on the person and the circumstances, we have created several case studies as reference materials.

These are based on genuine Safeguarding Concerns reported to the Council Contact Centre, and can  be used for Induction, Training, Supervision or Team Briefings to support staff and volunteers to understand what is and isn’t Safeguarding.
