One of Conwy County Borough Council’s corporate priorities is to ensure that vulnerable people are protected and are able to live as independently as possible.
As a Council, we believe that every child and adult has a right to be safe from harm. The Council acknowledges its role and responsibilities to provide definite guidance for staff, Councillors, partners and those people whom we serve in this key field.
Safeguarding is everybody's business in every Service within the Council. Whilst Social Services is the Lead Service for dealing with enquiries regarding allegations / concerns that children and adults may be suffering significant harm, everyone has a responsibility to safeguard the welfare of children, young people and adults, whatever the role of the individual
Safeguarding is a wider concept than the protection of children and adults and deals with the promoting of:
- Physical, emotional and mental health;
- Protection from harm and neglect;
- Education, training and leisure;
- Contribution to society;
- Social and economic well-being
