Safeguarding Week 2019

Brighton & Hove Safeguarding Children Partnership are running a week of events to highlight specific areas of risk and concern that effect the young people we all work with across our locality.

This year is being used to focus safeguarding professionals on the effects of young people’s mental health and how this can also be part of, or a manifestation of a larger picture of neglect for the young person.

The weeks sessions will look at aspects of recognition, potential interventions and assistance via services that can be offered to children, young people and their families. It will also consider the possible trauma caused by early neglect or abuse, which may in turn have led to poor mental health.

There is a full week of events,which can be found by following the link –  Safeguarding Week 2019
