Safeguarding is about protecting children and adults from abuse or neglect and educating those around them to recognise the signs and dangers.
The Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act introduces a strengthened, robust and effective partnership approach to safeguarding.
One of the most important principles of safeguarding is that it is everyone’s responsibility. Each professional and organisation must do everything they can, to ensure that children and adults at risk are protected from abuse.
National Independent Safeguarding Board
We are establishing a National Independent Safeguarding Board to work with the safeguarding adults boards and safeguarding children boards across Wales.
The board’s duties will be to:
- provide support and advice to safeguarding boards with a view to ensuring that they are effective
- report on the adequacy and effectiveness of arrangements to safeguard children and adults in Wales
- make recommendations to the Welsh Ministers as to how those arrangements could be improved.
All Wales Child Protection Procedures (AWCPP)
The AWCPP are an essential part of safeguarding children and promoting their welfare. They inform child protection practice in each of the local and regional safeguarding children boards across Wales.
They are managed by the All-Wales Child Protection Review Group (external link) which represents all of Wales’ safeguarding children boards and partner agencies.
National action plan to prevent and protect children and young people from sexual exploitation

- prevent and protect children and young people from sexual exploitation
- provide responsive, appropriate and consistent support to those identified as being subject to or at risk of sexual exploitation
- contribute to the identification, disruption and prosecution of perpetrators.
