What should a safeguarding notice board display in your parish premises?

  • A copy of the parish policy signed within the last year with the relevant contact details on.
  • An A3 policy poster is available in the Parish Handbook. There is also an editable version of this poster with the Diocese of Worcester information pre-filled. 
  • A ChildLine poster should be displayed in all premises where children’s and youth groups regularly meet.
  • You may also wish to display this poster ‘What to do if…’ with advice and contact details for responding to safeguarding concerns.

Dealing with safeguarding during the coronavirus pandemic

The NSPCC has created a new webpage with information and advice for parents or carers who are worried a child or young person may be struggling with their mental health or has anxiety about coronavirus. The webpage includes information on: talking about feelings and worries; keeping in touch and balancing screen time; ways to create structure and routine; and helping to give children a sense of control. Read the information and advice: Talking to a child worried about coronavirus (COVID-19).

Domestic Abuse: We know that for those experiencing domestic abuse, self isolating at home presents additional dangers. Women’s Aid have provided some specific safety advice.
