Keeping children safe

Everyone has the right to live free from harm, abuse and neglect. Children, young people and vulnerable adults have the legal right to be protected from harm to enable them to grow and develop in a safe, healthy and nurturing environment.

Safeguarding children is everyone's business. Everyone who comes into contact with children and families has a duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.
