Working towards a safer
Warwickshire for all.


We all have a responsbility for safeguarding children; keeping children safe.  Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is defined as:

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

The definition has been taken from statutory guidance, Working Together 2018 and the Children & Social Work Act 2017 which specifies inter-agency working to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.

Our Safeguarding Children website has been designed to provide information and guidance for:

  • children and young people
  • parents and carers 
  • professionals and agencies working with children, young people and their families

We hope that you find our website useful, if you cannot find the information that you are looking for please get in touch using 'Contact Us' page.
