A CHANNEL FOR ANYONE WHO WORKS WITH CHILDREN

"But why didn't you just say something?" 

It is extremely difficult for a child who is being abused to speak out. This channel is for all safeguarding practitioners. It offers insight into the victim's perspective so that you can understand your role in keeping children safe. 

PLEASE SUBSCRIBE to support Siobhan's channel, where she talks about her direct experience of child sexual abuse, as well as policy and research issues around safeguarding.
