SAFEGUARDING CHILDREN & ADULTS AT RISK

CARE SECTOR

Safeguarding children and

adults at risk.

“Safeguarding means protecting people's health, wellbeing and human rights, and enabling them to live free from harm, abuse and neglect.” Care Quality Commission (CQC)

The social care sector caters for children and adults who need support for a number of different reasons. Such care can be publicly or privately funded and provided within residential accommodation or within the home. Those responsible for providing care have a duty to take action when children or adults are at risk of abuse or neglect.  

​Care homes will have safeguarding policies in place and processes to manage breaches in standards. Globocol has designed a software application which will help care providers to more efficiently manage the reporting and investigation of all incidents or concerns, however minor. This includes automated workflows, a clear chronology of events, secure document storage and the ability to outsource investigations to external agencies. Dropdown options to classify types of failings enable you to auto-create reports and data for analysis.

CHARITIES

Protecting people who come into contact with your charity.

Protecting people and safeguarding is a fundamental part of operating as a charity for the public benefit. Trustees must take reasonable steps to protect from harm anybody who comes into contact with their charity. Individuals who are potentially at risk include staff and volunteers as well as those who benefit from the charity’s work. If things go wrong, trustees are expected to take responsibility for putting things right.

If an individual suffers abuse or mistreatment of any kind from being in contact with a charity, trustees will be held to account by The Charity Commission. This means that every charity needs effective and efficient processes in place to manage breaches in safeguarding standards.

UNIVERSITIES

Safeguarding students, staff and visitors.

In general terms, safeguarding is about protecting those who may be at risk of abuse and exploitation. In a university environment, this also involves the wellbeing of students, staff and visitors. Whilst parents and guardians will accept a level of responsibility, universities do have a legal responsibility to protect and safeguard those at risk of harm.

All universities will have safeguarding policies in place and processes to manage breaches in standards.

NGO's

Everyone should be protected from abuse, neglect and exploitation.

The NGO sector is hugely diverse and widely geographically dispersed. Building a consistent approach to safeguarding, so that all NGO’s work to similar standards, is a significant challenge. However, everyone has the right to be protected from all forms of harm, abuse, neglect and exploitation. That means transparent policies to protect those at risk of harm. An essential element in the mix is an efficient and effective incident and complaints management process.

Children and adults involved in sport should always be protected from harm. There is a statutory duty to be alert to any potential risks and have adequate systems in place if things go wrong. This places an obligation on those in charge.

The Globocol safeguarding software application for sport provides a means of reporting incidents and risks to your organisation. It also enables sports to highlight problem locations, types of abuse and individuals of concern. It enables you to record and carry out a full investigation of breaches in safeguarding standards.

If you organise or provide performing arts activities that involve children or adults at risk, you have an obligation to prioritise their wellbeing. There is specific legislation and guidance for child performers which means that the environment must be safe for them and that they are supervised by the right people. Adult performers can also be subject to abuse and their interests need to be protected.

Globocol has designed a software application for safeguarding children and adults at risk and to help those with a duty of care.
