Helping keep children safe
Everyone can help to keep children safe. That’s the message of new information materials launched by the Orkney Child Protection Committee.
A public information leaflet which raises awareness of the signs that may indicate a child is suffering from abuse or neglect, and explains what to do if you are worried about a child or young person will be circulated throughout Orkney this month.
An e-bulletin highlighting the work being done locally to protect children has been sent to organisations whose staff and volunteers work with children, and new webpages for children and young people, and for adults who are concerned about a child are now available at www.orkney.gov.uk/childprotection.
