Parents & Carers

As a parent, carer or trusted adult, you play an important role in protecting children from abuse and neglect and helping children to grow up into confident, healthy and happy adults.

Most children generally enjoy happy childhood experiences within their own family. Unfortunately for some, this is not the case. During difficult family times, everyone must do the best they can to protect children from harm.

Here you will find information on keeping children and young people safe and where you can go when you need further information or support.
