Safeguarding children and adults

Everyone is entitled to be protected from abuse, neglect and to feel safe and cared for.

Adults may be harmed or taken advantage of by those in a position of power over them. Every adult has a right to:

  • A life free of fear
  • Be treated with dignity
  • Have their choices respected and not be forced to do anything against their will

More information about abuse, and the help that is available, can be found on the Tameside Council website.

Safeguarding adults

We all share responsibility for safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, whether as a parent, carer or family member, a friend or neighbour, an employer, or as a paid or volunteer worker.

If you are worried about a child, or would like more information, have a look at the Tameside Safeguarding Children Partnership web page.
