Safeguarding Adults Policy

Safeguarding Adults Policy

Introduction

The Cambridgeshire Golf Club is committed to creating and maintaining a safe and positive environment for all individuals involved in golf

Safeguarding duties apply to an adult who:

  • has needs for care and support (whether or not the local authority is meeting any of those needs)
  • is experiencing or is at risk of abuse or neglect
  • as a result of those care and support needs is unable to protect themselves from either the risk of or the experience of abuse or neglect

Principles in relation to adults at risk

The Care and Support Statutory Guidance Section 14.13 sets out the following six key principles which underpin all adult safeguarding work:

  • Empowerment: People being supported and encouraged to make their own decisions and informed consent
  • Prevention: It is better to take action before harm occurs
  • Proportionality: The least intrusive response appropriate to the risk presented
  • Protection: Support and representation for those in greatest need
  • Partnership: Local solutions through services working with their communities. Communities have a part to play in preventing, detecting and reporting neglect and abuse
  • Accountability: Accountability and transparency in delivering safeguarding.

Making safeguarding personal is the concept that adult safeguarding should be person led and outcome focused. It engages the person in a conversation about how best to respond to their safeguarding situation in a way that enhances involvement, choice and control. As well as improving quality of life, well-being and safety

 

Wherever possible discuss safeguarding concerns with the adult to get their view of what they would like to happen and keep them involved in the safeguarding process, seeking their consent to share information outside of the organisation where necessary

 

The principles of the Mental Capacity Act 2005 (MCA) state that every individual has the right to make their own decisions and provides the framework for this to happen

 

In addition, The Cambridgeshire Golf Club recognises the following principles which underpin our work with all groups and individuals who may have additional needs for support and protection:
