Children and young adults with disabilities

Safeguarding children, young people and young adults is everyone’s responsibility especially because their vulnerability makes them more susceptible to all forms of abuse than people without impairments. It is important that professionals identify low level risks and ensure that they are managed through multi agency early support so there is early intervention and prevention to minimise the risk and harm that could occur.
