Safeguarding Young People

Surrey Youth Focus: Let’s work together to keep young people safe in Surrey

On behalf of and with funding from Surrey County Council, we set up the Surrey Youth Focus Safeguarding Network in 2017 to help organisations who offer activities or services to young people in Surrey to safeguard young people. 

We reach out to all charities, voluntary organisations, businesses or other organisations who deliver services to children* in Surrey.

See our latest information Engaging with young people online including advice from organisations during this current difficult time.

(* The definition of young people we are using here is age 11-18 or 11-25 for young people with Special Educational Needs and Care leavers)

To find out more contact info@surreyyouthfocus.org.uk or sign up to the FREE Safeguarding network to receive our bulletin on Safeguarding.
