Safeguarding and child/adult protection
All adults and children have a right to be protected from harm. Safeguarding children and vulnerable adults is of vital importance to our services, and we work closely with partner organisations to do this.
If you have any concerns that a vulnerable adult is at risk or needs help to protect themselves then you should share your concerns following the advice on the Safeguarding Adult Board website
If you have any concerns that a child is at risk or suffering harm, then you should share your concerns following the advice on the Safeguarding Children Board website
Can you spot the signs that could change a child’s life?
The Department of Health and leading national charity The Children’s Society have worked together to develop a new, interactive eLearning course designed to help healthcare staff spot the signs of child sexual abuse and exploitation.
We are proud to be promoting the training and asking people to make time to take the course, please help us to spread the word.
To take the hour long course, just head over to www.seenandheard.org.uk and complete the eLearning module. One hour of your time could make a vital difference to a child’s whole life.
