Safeguarding children

There have been two recent initiatives designed to inform parents and engage with all residents to contribute to ensuring our children are safer.

Stop Abuse Together – A Government initiative concerned with protecting children from sexual abuse. It’s important to know how to spot the potential signs of child sexual abuse and where to go for support. The Stop Abuse Together website brings together advice and resources to help you keep the children in your life safe.

Shropshire Safeguarding Community Partnership – A call to action urging residents to play their part in helping keep children safe and free from neglect. It follows the impact the pandemic has had, and continues to have, on some families, and wants to highlight and encourage them and the wider community to seek help and advice to support them.
