Out of school activities
In light of the allegations of historical child sexual abuse at various football clubs across the country, the Essex Safeguarding Children’s Board, Sports Active Essex and Essex County Council Local Area Designated Officers have jointly published Guidance for Parents on choosing out of school activities http://www.escb.co.uk/Portals/67/Parents/How%20to%20choose%20a%20club,%20tutor,%20coach%20FINAL.pdf 

We hope you might find this publication useful.

Gangs
In light of the growing concern about drugs gangs operating in Essex, including the issue around ‘county lines’, Essex Safeguarding Children’s Board (ESCB) have updated their Parents/Carers pages, to provide information on signs to look out for and how to support young people.  This section of the ESCB also contains a lot of other useful safeguarding information for parents/carers.
