Children and young people are normally seen by lots of different adults every day, like neighbours, grandparents and teachers. But due to coronavirus (COVID-19) we're self-isolating, social distancing and spending much more time at home.
This means some families might need extra support with parenting. And if a child is experiencing abuse, there aren't as many opportunities for adults to spot the signs and help.
It's everyone's responsibility to keep children safe. We all need to play our part by checking in with families and reaching out for support and advice if we have any concerns. More information can be found on the following website https://www.nspcc.org.uk/
