Protecting children and young people from harm is one of the most important things we do. We are committed to ensuring that all children with additional needs are identified early, referred to appropriate services and monitored through effective information sharing between agencies and professionals. Our single point of access (SPA) acts as a central information hub. The SPA streamlines and rationalises any contact we receive, whether it is from a member of the public or a professional, relating to child protection or safeguarding.
Representatives from local schools and other organisations who work with children and young people across the borough came together to learn more about how to tackle child neglect.
