Parents & Carers

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

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

Most children enjoy generally happy childhood experiences 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.

This section is about assisting parents or guardians in safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people.

We hope you will find the information useful.
