Safeguarding is still everyone's responsibility

Status and Update of Safeguarding Arrangements during COVID-19

The Cwm Taf Morgannwg Safeguarding Board (CTMSB) is a multi-agency partnership comprising of statutory, voluntary and charitable organisations who work together to help safeguard children, young people and vulnerable adults from abuse and neglect.

During these unprecedented times, safeguarding children and adults at risk remains a priority throughout RCT, Merthyr Tydfil and Bridgend. In order to ensure that safeguarding functions continue, the Regional Safeguarding Board and its partners have been working to implement revised operating models which enable us to comply with Government advice and still provide a safeguarding service and response within the region.  

National and regional updates will be provided on a regular basis via the Safeguarding Board’s website.  The website also contains information, advice and resources for professionals and those within the community on how to respond and stay safe during this pandemic:
