Keeping Children Safe Guidance

Keeping Children Safe Guidance

We're highlighting the national partnership campaign message to respond to a potential increase in safeguarding and domestic abuse issues during lockdown.

Children and young people are usually seen by lots of different adults and professionals every day such as neighbours and teachers but essential lockdown means normal opportunities they would have to notice any problems or check on their wellbeing are reduced.

Where possible schools across Derbyshire have remained open and are continuing to teach vulnerable children identified as needing additional support as well as those of key workers.

Meanwhile we're appealing for a community 'say something if you see something' approach to help keep children and young people at risk safe.

Residents who are worried about a child can find support, advice and information about staying safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as how to report their concerns, plus find help to deal with domestic abuse.
