National Safeguarding Month

Stop, Look, Listen this National Safeguarding Month

We’re joining with UK Youth – a leading national charity that supports over four million young people through their network of youth organisations – to help #KeepMeSafe.

Through the #KeepMeSafe campaign, UK Youth is calling on all organisations that work with young people to Stop what they’re doing, Look at their safeguarding practices, Listen to young people and take action during National Safeguarding Month.

The month hopes to put a spotlight on the welfare of young people to inspire and motivate youth organisations to create bright futures with their safeguarding policies.

With an ever increasing digital world, research completed by UK Youth showed that young people are facing increasing pressures. The research found that:

  • 67% of young people have had no one to turn to on at least one
  • 64% of young people say they are more likely to battle on alone then go to anyone for help.
  • On social media, 53% of young people feel under pressure to keep up with everyone else and 42% of young people saying social media just adds to their worries and stress

Join us during National Safeguarding Month by committing to the highest standards of safeguarding policies and practices. You can pledge your support using #KeepMeSafe on social media and find out more about the campaign on the UK Youth website.
