Information for People Working with Children

People that work with children and young people have a duty to keep them safe from harm, protect their welfare and support them to achieve their potential.

Safeguarding is everybody’s responsibility, so it is important that people that work with children and young people have the knowledge and experience to fulfil their duties.

Safeguarding children can be a huge responsibility when it comes to dealing with difficult issues such as exploitation, abuse and neglect.

This section of the website is especially relevant if you are a person that works with children and families in any capacity, whether as paid workers or as volunteers. It is designed to provide advice and guidance to frontline staff about safeguarding children and young people.
