Safeguarding Children Week June 2021
The Rochdale Borough Safeguarding Children Partnership is holding its second annual Safeguarding Children Awareness Week 14 – 20 June 2021.
Safeguarding really is ‘everyone’s business’ and it is a responsibility we all share here in Rochdale.
The week will focus on sharing key safeguarding information, particularly on identifying and responding to neglect, the impact of domestic abuse on children and young people, and keep baby safe: safer sleep advice and coping with infant crying.
The week was meant to be an event packed week but has now moved online due to continuing Covid-19 restrictions.
We hope to be position to hold a more interactive week later in 2021.
