SafeguardingRecent events have once again highlighted the need for vigilance in all services for children, and shown just how vulnerable they still are – even in the places where they should be most safe.

AFTA Thought have begun to pilot sessions in both private and public provision to raise awareness of Safeguarding for those staff working in nurseries, out of school provision and for childminders. Recent clients have included The Children’s Place in West Yorkshire, who wanted their staff to feel equipped to recognise concerns and to identify where family support may be needed – and when referrals are necessary.
