Looking after the children of Greenwich
Supporting the volunteers and carers in the Royal Borough
Working together to keep children safe
Virtual and e-training has been developed and details can be found on our Training Page. Some face to face training will be reintroduced from September if it is safe to do and will be held in line with social distancing guidelines.
All children in Royal Greenwich, regardless of their background and circumstances, should have a happy and fulfilled childhood where they enjoy school and family life, learn, belong, grow and achieve so that they enter adulthood ready, willing and able to achieve their highest potential.
The Children and Social Work Act 2017 replaced Local Safeguarding Children Boards with new arrangements that place a shared and equal duty on the local authority, the police and the Clinical Commissioning Group to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. In June 2019, new multi-agency safeguarding arrangements have been implemented.
