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.
(* 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)
Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub
The Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub – MASH is now the single point of contact for reporting safety concerns for a child, young person or adult.
In 2015 Surrey Youth Focus in partnership with Surrey County Council brought 85 youth organisations together for the Surrey Safeguarding Young People Conference. Please see the presentations and notes.
