Everybody has the right to be safe no matter who they are or what their circumstances
Safeguarding is about protecting children, young people and adults who are vulnerable from abuse or neglect.

Information for Town and Parish Councils, Voluntary and Community Groups
The role of a local council and the voluntary and community sector in serving its local community is becoming more important than ever.
As services are handed devolved to local control it is important that steps are taken to ensure that the interests of the most vulnerable people in their communities, such as;
- young people,
- and adults at risk
are taken into account and provided with protection.
As part of this commitment, we have a role in helping;
- town and parish councils
- voluntary groups
- and community groups
in Cornwall to meet their safeguarding obligations.
We have prepared a toolkit to help you to undertake a review of your safeguarding arrangements or put them into place for the first time.
