Torbay Safeguarding Children Partnership

Front line workers and volunteers play very important safeguarding roles. Often, those working with children and their families can be the first to notice the signs of abuse, illness, family related issues or bullying.

If you have a serious concern about a child or family, contact or phone 01803 208100
