Devon District Councils believe that all children, young people and adults have the right to be safe, happy and healthy and deserve protection from abuse.  The councils are committed to safeguarding from harm all children, young people and adults with
care and support needs (see definition in point 4 relating to the Care Act 2014) using any council services and involved in any of their activities, and to treat them with respect during their dealings with the councils, our partners and contractors.
