Message from David Spicer, Chairman of Ruyton XI Towns Parish Council.
There have been two recent initiatives designed to inform parents and engage with all residents to contribute to ensuring our children are safer.
The first is by the government and is concerned with protecting children from sexual abuse. A website has been created and can be accessed at the following link.
The first page has information and options opened by clicking.
I'm a parent or carer
Knowing the signs can help keep your child safe.
Find tips and advice on how to talk to your child about their relationships and safety.
You don't have to be certain to talk to a trained professional about a concern. Learn about the support on offer.
The second is a call to action by the Shropshire Safeguarding Community Partnership, the successor multiagency body to both the Local Safeguarding Children Board and Local Safeguarding Adults Board.
More information is available on the Shropshire Council website at the following link:
Residents urged to play their part to help
keep our children free from neglect
The call to action from Shropshire's Safeguarding Community Partnership follows the impact the pandemic
has had, and continues to have, on some families, and wants to highlight and encourage them and the wider
community to seek help and advice to support them.
