Safeguarding means helping children to grow up into confident, healthy and happy adults . It also means protecting children from physical, emotional, sexual abuse and neglect.
Most children generally enjoy a 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 harm.
This section of our website is for parents, carers and anyone else who may be concerned about the wellbeing of a child or young person.
We have set up a parent's information page to help make parents aware of all aspects of Child Protection and Safeguarding
