Day 4 of Safeguarding Children Week 2023
On Day 4 of Safeguarding Children Week, Hampshire and Isle of Wight Safeguarding Children Partnerships are delighted to release a new toolkit on safeguarding infants under the age of one.
Safeguarding Unborn Babies and Infants
The new Safeguarding Infants Toolkit supports professionals working with new and expectant parents in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. It provides information on four programmes of work that are in place to support our most vulnerable group of children:
- Unborn/New Born Baby Protocol
- Injuries in non-mobile infants
- Every Sleep Counts (ensuring every sleep is a safe sleep)
- ICON (coping with crying / abusive head trauma prevention programme)
View the Safeguarding Infants Toolkit.
Developed by the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Safeguarding Children Partnerships, Safeguarding Children Week brings together agencies and organisations across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight to raise awareness among partners, professionals and community and voluntary leaders about the importance of safeguarding children and promoting their welfare.
Each day of Safeguarding Children Week we will be promoting a different theme to professionals working with children and families in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.
X/Twitter posts will be posted throughout this week in support of Safeguarding Children Week – please follow us at @HampshireSCP and search for #safeguardingchildren2023.
