For parents and carers
Safeguarding is about protecting children, young people and adults at risk from 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 protect them from future harm.
You could be a neighbour, friend, relative, childminder, teacher or doctor, or working for any organisation which has contact with children and young people. Protecting children is everyone's responsibility.
