Safeguarding

Safeguarding children is defined in Working together to safeguard children as:

  • protecting children from maltreatment
  • preventing impairment of children’s health or development
  • ensuring that children are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care
  • taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes

All adults in our community share a responsibility to make sure children are not at risk of harm.  Occasionally a parent or other adult becomes concerned about something that they hear, see or know about another family or child.   If you have a child protection or safeguarding concern about a child it is important that you contact Hampshire Children’s Services as a matter of urgency.  All calls by members of the public are treated in confidence.
