Safeguarding Children during COVID-19

We have produced some information about safeguarding children during COVID-19 for professionals. Most children are safe at home but for those children who are struggling we encourage everyone to play their part and if you see something: say something. Please take a look at the short film clip and accompanying information sheet to help you to get help for children if needed.
