Tuesday 16th July is National Disability Awareness Day – please spread the word
Did you know that disabled children and young people (DC&YP) are 3-4 times more likely to be abused and neglected than non-disabled children and young people and more likely to experience multiple types and episodes of abuse?
Northumberland Safeguarding Children’s Board is committed to promoting an understanding of the vulnerability of DC&YP to abuse/neglect and seeking assurance that partners are working well together to promote the welfare of DC&YP and respond in a robust, timely way when there are safeguarding concerns.
Have a lovely Summer thanks for all your hard work and dedication this academic year. Keep an eye on our Facebook page – Early Years Northumberland for updates and reminders over the summer.
