Safeguarding information for Leeds practitioners working with children and families during the COVID-19 pandemic

As the COVID-19 virus continues to put pressure on children and families across Leeds it’s important to ensure that practitioners can assess information that is helpful, informative and can support them when working with families.

To facilitate this the Leeds Safeguarding Children Partnership (LSCP) have created a new section of their website with lots of helpful information on safeguarding children, young people and families during the COVID-19 pandemic and suggestions on how to do some things differently.

Information and guidance is currently available on:

  • using volunteers
  • Things to consider when visiting families
  • Talking to children about the Coronavirus
  • Looking after yourself, and
  • How safeguarding services are operating.

The website is regularly updated as more information is made available.

Make sure you are kept informed and up to date with any new advice or guidance being produced by checking back on the website for the latest information: www.leedsscp.org.uk/COVID19
