Safeguarding Children are celebrating 11 years in existence, having now trained over 33,000 of the workforce in child protection.
2021 was our centennial anniversary which seemed the perfect year to begin the co-ordination of child protection week as one of the ways we mark this milestone for our organisation. The purpose of this week is to raise awareness of what individuals, organisations and communities can do to increase the protection of children, because we all have a part to play.
Safeguarding Children works with organisations, assisting them to become safer places for children to be.
We know there is always more that everyone can do to prevent child abuse and neglect and effectively respond to it when it does happen.
We want every week to be child protection week. Every day, every week, our children protected from abuse and neglect everywhere they go.
We hope you can get on board and promote this week widely to get as many people on board as possible. We strongly believe and always promote the notion that safeguarding children and child protection takes people, services, agencies and communities working together. If everybody does their piece of the puzzle, children will be safer everywhere they go.
