Making Safeguarding Personal

Making Safeguarding Personal (MSP) is about developing a safeguarding culture that is person-led and outcome-focused.

It is vital that people are recognised as the experts on their own lives and professionals and agencies engage effectively and work alongside them in determining how best to respond to safeguarding concerns.

A Making Safeguarding Personal approach should enhance the person’s involvement, choice and control as well as improving quality of life, wellbeing and safety. It aims to facilitate a shift in emphasis in safeguarding from undertaking a process to a commitment to improving outcomes alongside people experiencing abuse or neglect.
