Recognise the signs of possible abuse and neglect in homes you visit and help keep children safe

Do you know how to recognise the possible signs of child abuse and neglect?

Every day, thousands of children and young people are normally seen by lots of different adults like family members outside of the home, teachers, health and social workers and neighbours.

Due to COVID-19 and social distancing measures, children and young people are spending much more time at home and we know isolation can put some children at a greater risk of abuse and neglect.

Postal workers, delivery drivers and workers who regularly visit homes are well placed to spot any emerging safeguarding concerns or signs of possible abuse and neglect.

To support you, we're temporarily making our paid-for online safeguarding course (It's your call) free for you to access while most children are out of school.

What will I learn?

Our 15-minute interactive elearning course will help workers who enter or have access to people’s homes to:

  • recognise the signs of possible child abuse and neglect
  • report concerns either through your work channels, the NSPCC helpline or, if the concern is urgent, the police
  • support those who may have already witnessed signs of child abuse and provide advice.
