Wales Safeguarding Procedures

The Wales Safeguarding Procedures for children and adults at risk of abuse and neglect are the national procedures. They detail the essential roles and responsibilities for practitioners to ensure that they safeguard children and adults who are at risk of abuse and neglect.

The Procedures help practitioners apply the legislation in the Social Services and Wellbeing (Wales) Act 2014 and statutory safeguarding guidance, Working Together to Safeguard People.
