Coventry Safeguarding Children Partnership
Safeguarding resources for parent, carers and families
- The NSPCC have developed a suite of resources to support parents and carers in keeping children safe. Their advice guides include online safety, including specific advice around video games, self harm, sexting, leaving children at home alone and talking PANTS.
- Does your child play sports or attend any meetings or clubs out of school? The Government has produced some guidance for parents to help their children stay safe, which includes 10 key questions to ask activity providers to put your mind at rest.
- Get Safe Online is a website dedicated to help you know that your children are safe on the internet. Their guidance is broken down into age ranges and has specific sections for gaming, social network, music and movies and parental control software so you can go straight to what you're looking for.
- Family Lives are an organisation who offer support to parents and families on the phone, Skype and via email. They welcome chats about anything worrying you - from a crisis to everyday parenting challenges and are available 7 days a week.
- Are you concerned about your child's mental health? YoungMinds has a helpline and parent's survival guide to help you get through it together.
- Some parents choose to share a bed (or other places to sleep) with their baby for most of the night, not just for feeds or comfort. To consider safer co-sleeping with a baby, have a look at our information leaflet
West Midlands Police have written an open letter to parents and carers about County Lines child exploitation. It includes an explanation of what County Lines means, the signs to look out for, what to do if you're worried about a young person and links to further information if you want to know more.
