Creating a Safeguarding Culture
Everyone has the right to feel safe from abuse, but sometimes bad things do happen. Ignoring a difficult topic doesn’t make it go away. Quite the opposite. It’s really important to open conversations about abuse, so that people are aware of the risks and warning signs, and better equipped to protect vulnerable people from harm. Creating a safeguarding culture is all about making sure that people feel safe and confident to speak about abuse and take action when necessary. Whatever job you do, but especially if you work with people at high risk of being abused, safeguarding needs to be integrated into the core values of your workplace.
