Making Safeguarding Personal
Information on how to develop an outcome focus when working with adults at risk.
Making Safeguarding Personal, in its simplest form, means putting the person at the centre of everything we do during a safeguarding enquiry, from the very beginning to the very end. Making Safeguarding Personal seeks to achieve:
- a personalised approach that enables safeguarding to be done with, not to, people
- practice that focuses on achieving meaningful improvement to people’s circumstances rather than just on ‘investigation’ and ‘conclusion’
- an approach that utilises social work skills rather than just ‘putting people through a process’
- an approach that enables practitioners, families, teams and safeguarding adult boards to know what difference has been made
