Coronavirus (COVID-19) Safeguarding Guidance

Active Suffolk recognises that there are a series of challenges arising as a result of the covid-19 outbreak connected to the safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults.

The changes to day to day life we are experiencing may mean there is less contact between vulnerable people and those who often act as the eyes and ears of the community.

Teachers and community volunteers (e.g. sports coaches) are often the first to spot signs of abuse and neglect and, with agencies being focused elsewhere, we must work together to protect the most vulnerable.
