Stop, Look and Listen this National Safeguarding Month

What will your #StopLookListen17 pledge be for National Safeguarding Month?

UK Youth NSM LogoTo mark the start of National Safeguarding Month on 28th February, UK Youth, the largest national body for the youth sector, is calling on all organisations that work with young people to

Stop what they’re doing,

Look at their safeguarding practices,

Listen to young people and take action before the end of March.

The month hopes to put a spotlight on the welfare of young people to inspire and motivate youth organisations to create bright futures with their safeguarding policies.

"By highlighting the importance of safeguarding procedures, we hope National Safeguarding Month will unite the youth sector in demonstrating its commitment to the highest standards of safeguarding policies and practices" - UK Youth
