Community and Voluntary Organisations
Welcome to the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Local Safeguarding Children Partnership’s (LSCPs) Community and Voluntary Organisations Toolkit.
Community, voluntary and faith groups play a huge role within the community by providing services and support to children and their families. They can often be the first point of contact for local families, children and young people needing help and support and are therefore well placed to recognise and respond to the signs of child abuse or neglect.
The information in this toolkit has been researched and developed to support organisations in their duty to ensure they are able to keep children safe. The material is free to access and available to anyone working with expectant parents/unborn babies, children and their families, and adults with care and support needs across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.
