yourtown understands that the safeguarding and wellbeing of children and young people requires an organisational culture where everybody prioritises the wellbeing of children, young people and adults at risk.
Children and young people are supported and encouraged to have their voices heard, to seek justice and to access counselling and other support services in order to overcome the impacts of harm.
What is 'harm'?
‘Harm’ means any detrimental effect or impact on a child’s physical, psychological or emotional wellbeing.
Harm may be caused by all forms of physical, emotional, or sexual abuse, neglect, or exploitation, whether intentional or unintentional.
