(481 KB) - Guidance - safeguarding children in Sutton (2011)
- Sutton CVS and the Sutton LSCB worked together to produce the 'Safeguarding children and young people in Sutton: Guidance for Voluntary and Community Organisations, Faith Groups and Supplementary Schools'. This guidance has been produced to assist voluntary sector organisations and other providers of services to children and young people in developing their own safeguarding procedures. There is an expectation from Sutton’s Safeguarding Children Board that as a minimum each governing board of an organisation, providing services to children up to the age of 18 years, will have certain policies and procedures. The Guidance details what to do if you are concerned about a child and who to contact. For more information about the Guidance please contact Sutton CVS on 020 8644 2867.
