We believe that all children should be able to grow up safe, be healthy, feel listened to and are given the right opportunities to achieve their potential.

We will work together to ensure that we put children at the heart of what we do. Where children are at risk or have been harmed we will actively cooperate to safeguard them and promote their welfare.

Our aims are that:

  • Children who receive services from NWBH are safeguarded and protected from all forms of harm
  • The voice of children is fully embedded in practice and service planning
  • All practitioners working with children have the skills needed to help and protect children, are well supervised and well managed
  • All children and their families receive consistent support, and are fully involved in making decisions about their lives.

Front line safeguarding practice is consistently good and effective.
