Brighton & Hove Safeguarding Children Partnership
The Brighton and Hove Safeguarding Children Partnership (BHSCP) is calling for all city residents to help protect vulnerable children and their families through these difficult times.
Under the current Coronavirus measures many families will not be able to access usual support networks, including schools, family and friends and other support groups. Because of this, families may be finding these times difficult and children could be left vulnerable.
No family should feel isolated and no child should feel vulnerable. If you or anyone you know needs support through this tough period, there is information of support available on the Front Door for Families website or you can contact them.
To contact Brighton and Hove City Council’s Front Door for Families:
Email your concerns to FrontDoorForFamilies@brighton-hove.gov.uk
Call 01273 290400 (option 1)
BHSCP are launching a ‘See Something... Say Something’ campaign to raise awareness of children who are ‘hidden’ from their usual safeguarding support networks. We are asking everyone to listen out and speak out if you have any concerns. You can find updates on this and other safeguarding matters on https://www.bhscp.org.uk/ .
Please help us keep the children of Brighton and Hove safe.
If you SEE or HEAR something and think a child may be at risk or in need of support, SAY something
and contact Front Door for Families.
