"We all have the same rights and expectations to independence, respect, choice, fulfillment of our
ambitions, to be heard, included, and to have privacy and confidentiality. These expectations are
central to the way in which we interact with each other in our life together.
Safeguarding involves a range of activities aimed at promoting the individual’s fundamental right
to be safe. These include making and maintaining safe environments for all, having processes to
follow should something go wrong, and support for everyone involved."
