National Child Protection Week 2nd-8th September 2018

"We all have a role to play in protecting children from harm. The little things we do every day can help to create safer environments for children. For instance:

  • Be kind to children and parents
  • Respect young people
  • Be a good role model around children
  • Get involved in your local community
  • Look out for signs of abuse or neglect; if you suspect something is wrong talk to an expert
  • Always take reports of abuse seriously
  • Avoid blame and don’t judge; instead, ask yourself what you can do to help
  • Listen to the needs of children and spend time with them"
