Information for Parents, Carers & The Community

Safeguarding is not only about protecting children from abuse and neglect. It is also about doing what is best for children to ensure that they are provided with opportunities to become successful adults.

Safeguarding children is everybody’s responsibility and children have a right to be safe in all environments, for example, at home, school, on the street and even on the internet.

This part of the website is especially relevant if you are a parent responsible for a child, a carer who works closely with children or are just an active member of the community.
