More protection for local children as Plymouth Safeguarding Children Partnership joins forces with the NSPCC

Delivery drivers, community volunteers and those working in trades are just some of the professionals the Plymouth Safeguarding Children Partnership is asking to undertake free online training to help spot child abuse and neglect in the city.

Plymouth Safeguarding Children Partnership consists of the Council and partner agencies such as police, health, community groups, charities, voluntary sector and schools.
