Parents & Carers

The safety and welfare of all children - or safeguarding - is everyone’s business. You could be a relative, neighbour, friend, parent, childminder, teacher or doctor - or working for any organisation which has contact with children and young people.


Parents & Carers

Most children generally enjoy a happy childhood within their own family. Unfortunately for some, this is not the case.

During difficult family times, everyone who knows the child must do the best they can to keep them safe and protect them from future harm and we need to work together to make sure this happens.

Safeguarding means protecting children from physical, emotional, sexual abuse and neglect. It also means helping children to grow up into confident, healthy and happy adults.

This part of the website is about helping parents, carers or guardians to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and young people. By providing information on the many different forms of abuse and signposting you to where you can go to report a concern or get further help and support, we are ensuring that Safeguarding really is everyone’s business.

Together we can make a difference.
