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.
