Coronavirus: Advice from our expert partners

We have asked our network of expert partners, what their advice is to help keep everyone safe as we learn to safeguard in new ways

NWG: our partners for our Child Exploitation courses

Child Exploitation advice during the Coronavirus crisis:

The protection of Children & Young People remains an absolute necessity during this period of isolation, which has the potential to create a greater risk of Exploitation especially as this will lead to increasing activity online presenting a particular acute danger during this lockdown period.

NWG continues to provide support for professionals with our unique position within the “Safeguarding Partnership Family” during this time.

Together we can continue to support those who are or could be affected by Exploitation.
