The Strategic Priorities are aligned with the six core principles of safeguarding:

  • Empowerment
    People being supported and encouraged to make their own decisions and informed consent.
  • Prevention
    It is better to take action before harm occurs.
  • Proportionality
    The least intrusive response appropriate to the risk presented.
  • Protection
    Support and representation for those in greatest need.
  • Partnership
    Local solutions through services working with their communities. Communities have a part to play in preventing, detecting and reporting neglect and abuse.
  • Accountability
    Accountability and transparency in safeguarding practice.
