Welcome to the Lambeth Safeguarding website

So what is Safeguarding? Safeguarding children, young people and adults means protecting them from abuse or neglect, getting the right support in place as early as possible and creating an environment in which they feel safe and healthy. Each local authority has a duty to do so and Lambeth Council is committed to working with the residents and all organisations in the borough, such as, the NHS, Family Doctors, Police, Education, Ambulance Service, as well as all Care providers and Voluntary and Community sector organisations and Faith groups to achieve this.
