Safeguarding is protecting a person's rights to live in safety and free from abuse and neglect.
We consider safeguarding critical for people who, because of issues such as dementia, learning disability, mental ill-health or substance abuse, have care and support needs that may make them more vulnerable to abuse or neglect.
Safeguarding Adults Reviews (SARs) are a statutory requirement for Safeguarding Adults Boards (SABs). Safeguarding adult practice can be improved by identifying what is helping and what is hindering safeguarding work, in order to tackle barriers to good practice and protect adults from harm. SARs need to be of good quality and need to be able to be shared to maximise the value of their learning.
At Outlook Care we operate a zero tolerance approach to abuse, ensuring that our top priority is that the people who use our services are safe against such behaviour. Our safeguarding committee continually review our strategies and practices to improve the safety and wellbeing of people we support. We review the impact of our work in relation to safeguarding customers annually.
