Keep Kids Safe During Lockdown

January 29th 2021

As most of Scotland re-enters lockdown, and the re-opening of schools and nurseries is delayed, families across the country face new challenges and stresses, and some children may experience abuse or neglect. CPCScotland is keen to maintain its messaging that it's vital for everyone to be alert to signs that all is not well for a child or young person and to take action if they're worried about a child's wellbeing during this phase of the pandemic. The role of the community to use their ears and eyes to help keep children safe from harm is particularly important when most children are not in the usual routine of school or nursery. As such, CPC Scotland is continuing to repeat our core message that it's always better to say something than do nothing. It's everyone's responsibility to keep children safe from harm.
