Safeguarding means protecting children and young people's health, wellbeing and rights, and enabling them to live free from harm, abuse and neglect. Safeguarding is a fundamental part of delivering high-quality health, education and care services, and is something that Young Epilepsy is committed to.
Safeguarding includes the actions we take every day to make sure the children and young people we work with, are safe and well and reach their fullest potential. It is making sure children have access to good quality education, care and health services when they need them. It is making sure staff have and follow clear guidance to provide the best and most effective support strategies for each student. It is making sure each child and young person has opportunities to express their views, wishes and feelings about their services and about things that matter to them. It is making sure children and young people enjoy and achieve. It is giving children and young people support and opportunities to build positive relationships and connections and to develop their own identity.
Safeguarding also includes the action we take to prevent harm and to act to protect children and young people if we think they have been or are at risk of harm, abuse or neglect.
