Help for Parents and Carers
As parents and carers, your main priority will be to make sure your children are healthy, happy, and safe.
This means more than just making sure they are physically safe, but looking after their emotional and mental well-being too. They need to know how to keep themselves safe when they are out, and to ensure they know all about online safety, on social networks, and when using their mobile phones.
If you have any concerns about the safety and well-being of your children please do not hesitate to contact our safeguarding team.
Please find below some links to several websites, videos, and documents that provide advice and support to help you keep your children safe.

The UK Government has launched a new advice and support site to help keep children safe from sexual abuse. The site includes advice for parents and carers on spotting the signs of sexual abuse and speaking to your child about relationships and safety. It also signposts to sources of further support for children, adults and professionals including the NSPCC helpline and Childline.
