100 Days of Safeguarding

During 2022 and into 2023 we will be running a 100 days of safeguarding campaign to reinforce existing messages, identify important local and national themes, update professionals about policies and procedures and share learning from reviews and audits. The messages will be a mixture of posters, briefings and documents. The messages are aimed at professionals as well as parents and we asks that you share them with your staff and where appropriate parents / members of the published. Messages will initially be published on the NSCP Twitter profile so make sure you are following us and a copy will then be added to this page which will then become a ‘one stop shop’ for all the information and links.
