We all share responsibility for safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, whether as a parent, carer or family member, a friend or neighbour, an employer, or as a paid or volunteer worker.

This website has been developed to offer up to date and accessible information about safeguarding children and young people and we hope you find it useful.

If you require further information about TSCP, or would like to give us your views or feedback on this website, please contact us.

Safeguarding during the coronavirus pandemic

TSCP would like to remind you that safeguarding remains a priority and if you have any concerns we advise you to follow the appropriate process as normal.

Additional support is available to families who are struggling to cope and existing support is being offered in different ways to protect and safeguard the most vulnerable.

A fact sheet 'Safeguarding Information for Volunteers' is available for all volunteers that will be supporting some of our most vulnerable residents during this time.

Due to the Coronavirus we have decided to suspend all multi-agency safeguarding training courses until mid-June. A range of e-learning courses are available to help ensure those supporting children and families have a basic awareness of some of the most important issues.

For all the latest advice on coronavirus please use the government website at https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus
