Making Safeguarding Personal
Making Safeguarding Personal (MSP) is a national approach to promote responses to safeguarding situations that enhances involvement, choice and control as well as improving quality of life, wellbeing and safety.
It is about seeing people as experts in their own lives and working alongside them to identify the outcomes they want, with the aim of enabling them to resolve their circumstances and support their recovery.
MSP emphasises the importance of a person-centred approach, adopting the principle of ‘no decision about me, without me’.
A person-led approach acknowledges that people require different levels of support and personalised information to make choices and manage risks, and where necessary access to advocacy support.
There are a range of national resources available to support MSP in practice.
