Making Safeguarding Personal
Developing a safeguarding culture that focuses on the personalised outcomes desired by people with care and support needs, who may have been abused is a key operational and strategic goal. Safeguarding Partnerships therefore may want to consider the role they can play in embedding the ‘Making Safeguarding Personal’ approach across agencies by establishing and developing:
a broader participation strategy
accessible information to support participation of people in safeguarding support
a focus on qualitative reporting on outcomes as well as quantitative measures
person-centred approaches to working with risk
policies and procedures that are in line with a personalised safeguarding approach
strategies to enable practitioners to work in this way, by looking at the skills they need and the support they are getting to enable this shift in culture.
