Children and Young People

The Barnet Safeguarding Children’s Board’s role is to ensure that agencies in Barnet who work with children and young people cooperate in their efforts to keep you safe and help you to do well.

The adults who look after you at home or at school or adults who you may meet whether, you are ill or needing help or involved in sport, music or other fun activities  or in a faith organisation  have a duty to protect you from harm and keep you safe. This applies to your parents or carers, your teachers, faith leaders, police officers, doctors and sport coaches.

If you or someone you know is being harmed by someone it is important to tell someone you trust like your teacher. They will take you concerns seriously, respect your privacy and make sure that whatever it is that is worrying you is dealt with in a way that helps you.

If you are in immediate danger you should call 999.
