Safeguarding Children Week June 2022
The Rochdale Borough Safeguarding Children Partnership is holding its third annual Safeguarding Children Awareness Week 13 – 19 June 2022.
Safeguarding really is ‘everyone’s business’ and it is a responsibility we all share here in Rochdale.
The principle focus of the week will be on raising awareness of child neglect.
Child neglect is a key priority for us all in Rochdale; it is one of the main reasons for a child or young person being on a Child Protection Plan in the borough and the effects of neglect on children and young people can be devastating.
We all have a duty to familiarise ourselves with key information and guidance so that we can all safeguard children and young people.
During the week we also want to take the opportunity to start finding out more about what young people, members of the public and practitioners know about safeguarding and the work of the safeguarding partnership in safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people in the borough.
