Safeguarding Children: Achieving the required level of competence

Module created February 2015 - Reviewed April 2019

Keeping children and young people safe is something that all adults need to be mindful of, and everyone should be alert to signs of possible abuse and neglect. Safeguarding in Wales is the responsibility of the Welsh Government and is a statutory responsibility for all health professionals.
