Welcome to the children and young people section of the City and Hackney Safeguarding Children Board website.
As a child or young person, you have a right to be safe in all environments, for example, at home, school, on the street and even on the internet. It is the role of parents, carers, teachers, learning mentors, doctors, nurses, social workers, police officers, faith leaders and sports coaches to ensure that you are safe from harm.
If you’ve got a problem or are worried about someone, such as a brother or sister, parent or a friend, it can be hard to know what to do. But you don’t have to cope on your own. As a child or young person, you have the right to grow up safe from people hurting you or failing to ensure that you are cared for. All adults have a responsibility to protect you.
