Everyone has a responsibility for safeguarding children and young people.
General safeguarding policies and guidance can be found on these pages.
Many of the topic pages on this site also have specific guidance for professionals, just look out for the ‘information for professionals’ button on the right hand side of the page.
You can also visit South West Child Protection Procedures (SWCPP) for more information and advice.
