Why is this course important?

Safeguarding children and young people from harm and providing an environment in which children can flourish is a critical societal value. Children and young people have a right to be “protected from all forms of violence, abuse, neglect and bad treatment by their parents or anyone else who looks after them” (United Nations 1989). Organisations are required to co-operate with other agencies to protect individual children and young people from harm. The importance of this has been powerfully highlighted as part of recent inquiries exploring child and young people safeguarding issues.
