What is child safeguarding?

Safeguarding refers to the actions that are taken to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm.

Safeguarding children involves the following:

  • protecting children from abuse and maltreatment
  • preventing harm to children’s health or development
  • ensuring children grow up with the provision of safe and effective care
  • taking action to enable all children and young people to have the best outcomes.

Is safeguarding children the same as child protection?

Child protection is part of the safeguarding process. It focuses on protecting individual children identified as suffering or likely to suffer significant harm. This includes child protection procedures which detail how to respond to concerns about a child.

Safeguarding children and child protection guidance and legislation applies to all children in the UK up to the age of 18.

Why is safeguarding children important?

Safeguarding children and young people from harm and providing an environment in which children can flourish is a key societal value. Children and young people have a right to be “protected from all forms of violence, abuse, neglect and bad treatment by their parents or anyone else who looks after them.” (United Nations 198910). Organisations are required to co-operate with other agencies to protect individual children and young people from harm. The importance of this has been powerfully highlighted as part of recent inquiries exploring child and young people safeguarding issues (Children’s Commissioner 201211).

Supportive and trustful relationships between children, their families and healthcare staff will be a key factor in enabling effective safeguarding management. Dependent upon roles, healthcare workers can be in an important position in helping to recognise child maltreatment. Healthcare staff need to be alert to signs and symptoms of maltreatment or neglect. They will have a vital role in ensuring effective recording, communication and sharing of information, to help improve identification and ensure appropriate support is put in place for children and young people in need or at risk of harm.

Healthcare staff will need to exercise professional judgement focused on the safety and welfare of children and young people (Munro 201112), and know how to make a referral when appropriate. Accordingly, healthcare organisations need to ensure that all staff that might be in contact with children or involved with their care have a clear awareness and understanding of safeguarding issues.
