Safeguarding Toolkit 2023


With the new CQC single assessment framework launched later this year, all care providers need to know what’s expected of them on the key issue of safeguarding. Under the CQC’s key question and quality statement on how to be safe.

The QCS Safeguarding Toolkit 2023 continues to be your one-stop resource for comprehensive guidance on safeguarding adults. Like you, we believe safeguarding is everybody’s business, and everyone has a role to play in ensuring the safety and wellbeing of vulnerable adults.

We understand that safeguarding can be a complex and challenging area, which is why we have developed a range of templates, editable PDFs, checklists and guidance that cover all aspects of safeguarding, from fact-finding to raising concerns, medication errors to physical intervention.

Your toolkit is designed to be easy to use and understand, providing managers and their teams with the information and support they need to ensure compliance and operate effectively. Use this Toolkit to help promote good communication and record-keeping, reduce the risk of harm to vulnerable adults, and ensure that everyone in your team is working towards the same goal.

    Regulations 2014 – Health and Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities)

    The intention of the regulations is to prevent people from receiving unsafe care and treatment and prevent avoidable harm or risk of harm. Care providers must assess the risks to people’s health and safety during any care or treatment and make sure that staff have the qualifications, competence, skills and experience to keep people safe.

    Care providers should ensure that they only employ “fit and proper” staff who are able to provide care and treatment appropriate to their role. To meet this regulation, providers must operate robust recruitment procedures and must have a procedure for ongoing monitoring of staff. Staff must receive the support, training, professional development, supervision and appraisals that are necessary for them to carry out their roles and responsibilities.
