A new centralised hub of information on child safeguarding is now available online for parents, carers and the wider community to make use of to keep children safe from risk and harm.

Led by HM Government, it includes information on safeguarding risks and harms children may be particularly vulnerable to during coronavirus (COVID-19) such as domestic abuse, child sexual abuse and criminal exploitation, with links to support available from such organisations as NSPCC and Barnardo’s.
