Support and resources

They emphasise the challenges of safeguarding young children who often can’t communicate their concerns verbally. They stress the importance of recognising changes in behaviour, not making assumptions about children’s wellbeing, and being culturally competent when working with families from diverse backgrounds.  

The episode encourages educational settings to adopt a proactive approach to safeguarding by providing support and resources for parents, such as signposting to food banks and assistance for various issues. They also stress the need for a “golden thread” of safeguarding running through daily practice rather than treating it as an annual formality.
