Parents and Carers

Are you a parent or carer?

We all have a personal responsibility to notice when a child or young person may be being abused and pass our concerns to someone who can act to protect them.

This part of the website is for parents, carers, anyone with parental responsibility, relatives, friends and neighbours who need information or advice.

Redbridge Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB) is a partnership of professionals, established under the Children Act 2004,  from across the statutory, private and voluntary sectors working together to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and young people.

Safeguarding children and young people means protecting them from abuse or neglect, getting the right support in place as early as possible and creating an environment in which children and young people feel safe and healthy.

Keeping children safe in Redbridge is everybody’s responsibility.

Further information is available in this section to safeguard and promote the welfare of children in Redbridge.

If you have any comments, questions or queries, please contact us.  To find out more about services available in Redbridge for children, young people and families contact Redbridge Families Information Direct (FiND).
