3.4 Identify sources of information and advice about own role in safeguarding and protecting individuals from abuse
4.1 Explain how the likelihood of abuse may be reduced by:
Working with person centred values
Encouraging active participation promoting choice and rights
Abuse occurs as the result of deliberate intent or negligence and usually stems from the facts that abusers have little or nor regard for their victims. They do not value them as people.

Best practice in health and social care settings requires workers to use person centred values in their work.
By doing so, they demonstrate respect for: -

Personal values, beliefs, preferences and life experience
Choices
Rights
Active participation and independence
4.2 Explain the importance of an accessible complaints procedure for reducing the likelihood of abuse
It shows that they are committed to providing a high quality service
It shows that they are serious about listening to the people who use it
It gives them an opportunity to identify poor working practices
It helps them to shape improvements to the way they work
It helps them plan how to deliver services in the future
It helps them identify where they need guidance from other agencies
It provides them with an opportunity to deal with problems as they arise and tackle them before they become serious, avoiding staff disciplines and criminal proceedings
It can shed light on more serious issues
It helps them develop a good reputation as a service provider
Principles of safeguarding and protection in health and social care
Learning outcomes
According to NSPCC research during 2009:

15,800 children and young people were victims of neglect
4,400 of physical abuse
2,000 of sexual abuse
9,100 of emotional abuse
2,900 were the victims of abuse for other mixed reasons

In other words, a total of 34,00 children and young people were suffering from some sort of abuse, not counting the cases that went unobserved or unreported.
Failure to protect vulnerable adults is reported on a regular basis in the media.

But, tragically many incidents of abuse go unobserved or unreported.

For 3.3 - Think about the following: -
How much progress have we made when it comes to protecting individuals from abuse?
Why does abuse still happen?
What changes do you think need to be made to protect vulnerable individuals from abuse?
Sources of information and advice about safeguarding and protecting individuals from abuse
Organisational policies and practice guidance, protocols and procedures
Work colleagues, including Designated Safeguarding Officers, management and human resources staff
