  • Empowerment – Presumption of person led decisions and consent
  • Protection – Support and representation for those in greatest need
  • Prevention – Prevention of neglect, harm and abuse is a primary objective
  • Proportionality – Proportionate and least intrusive response to the risk presented
  • Partnerships – Local solutions through services working with their communities
  • Accountability – Accountability and transparency in delivering safeguarding
