Safeguarding children and vulnerable adults has always been of critical importance. However, through recent issues such as #MeToo, there has been a recognition that protection issues extend more widely to staff and those which your organisation comes into contact with. Safeguarding has evolved quickly in the past year and we have seen it rise rapidly in the regulatory agenda, as well as having significant media prominence.
