Safeguarding means protecting children and vulnerable adults from harm, abuse and neglect.
The welfare of the adults and children who come into contact with the services Salford CCG commissions - either directly or indirectly - is of the utmost importance. All our staff have a responsibility to ensure our services are providing high quality, safe, effective care.
