Everyone in the UK has the fundamental right to live free from harm and abuse. Safeguarding is everyone’s business.
We are responsible for making sure that the services we commission are safe and effective, by working closely with many different stakeholders and organisations in Southwark and South East London.
The Southwark Safeguarding Team is involved in a variety of place based multi-agency forums. We make sure the relationships between the NHS and other health, care and social systems work at both strategic and operational levels to safeguard children, young people, and adults at risk of abuse and neglect.
