This section of our web site is for Parents and Carers and aims to provide information regarding safeguarding and related matters that may be worrying you.
The Children Act 2004 says that each area must have a Safeguarding Children Board. Our Local Safeguarding Children Board is made up by representatives from many organisations that have a role in safeguarding and protecting children across Hartlepool.
You will also find some useful links and contact details to information and support services in Hartlepool and also nationally. We continue to develop this page so please keep checking to see updates. We hope you will find the information useful.
