Safeguarding Board


The safety of children and young people in Wakefield is the most important thing to us.

To help us know how safe our children and young people really are, we have a Safeguarding Board. This is a group of senior managers from every agency (such as police, education, social care, youth service, NHS) that meets regularly to talk about safeguarding, and to make plans.

You might be interested to hear that the board is starting to look at setting up a children and young people's group, this will be an important way of finding out what our children's concerns around safety are in Wakefield.

At the moment, a lot of our written information is aimed at adults, but we are looking at getting more children engaged to work with the decision makers of the board, after all as our slogan says..

"Safeguarding is everybody's business", and children's voices are certainly part of that.
