Safeguarding children in Coventry is everyone's business!
This part of the website applies to you if you are a ‘Professional’, working with or caring for children and young people in an employed or voluntary capacity.
This includes people whose job brings them into contact with children infrequently or on an adhoc basis, such as members of the Emergency Services, or Clergy. It also includes the wide variety of people in a caring capacity, such as Foster Carers, Childminders or Youth Workers.
Coventry SCB is responsible for co-ordinating local agencies, in the 'statutory' and 'non statutory’ sectors and has a collective responsibility for ensuring that all agencies working with children in Coventry undertake their safeguarding duties and responsibilities.
This section is about sharing information in order to help and assist professionals in safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people.
We hope you will find the information useful.
