Safeguarding of Children (SOCA)
Safeguarding of Children (SOCA) Level 3
Abuse can take place in any organisation from schools, educational and recreational centres, sports areas, places of work, places of entertainment etc. and is not solely isolated in the home or place of residency.
We all recognise that the welfare of the child is paramount, as enshrined in the Children Act 1989 and that we have an obligation as care providers, to ensure all children irrelevant of inequalities, race, gender, religious belief etc. are protected from potential harm or irrelevant of where the source of the abuse is. By working in partnership with those affected, alongside with their parents/ guardians, key workers, carers and other agencies etc. we can promote and safeguard the welfare of all vulnerable children, young people to keep them safe.
The purpose of this module is to ensure appropriate action is undertaken in the event where a child/young person up to the age of 18 years is suspected by mentors or care workers of being subjected to or considered at risk of abuse from parents, guardians, siblings, carers, adult visitors to the home or other responsible adults within an organisation. It will set out the key principles that are expected of all staff and workers employed within the NHS and in the health care sector, and to ensure compliance is upheld in the safeguarding of children, young people and adults at risk of harm or abuse. This module is applicable to all employees and workers of NHS, including, volunteers, students, honorary appointees, trainees, contractors, and temporary workers, including locum doctors/social workers, nurse and those working on a bank or agency contract working with children and young adults.
