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 to Safeguard Children 2015 which specifies inter-agency working to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.  This is in addition to legislation; Children's Act 1989 and 2004.  

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
