This part of the website applies to you if you are a ‘Professional’, working with or caring for children and young people in an employed or voluntary capacity.


This includes people whose job brings them into contact with children infrequently or on an adhoc basis, such as members of the Emergency Services, or Clergy.  It also includes the wide variety of people in a caring capacity, such as Foster Carers, Childminders or Youth Workers.


BFG SB is responsible for co-ordinating local agencies, in the 'statutory' and 'non statutory’ sectors and has a collective responsibility for ensuring that all agencies working with children undertake their safeguarding duties and responsibilities. Safeguarding children is everyone's responsibility and the purpose of these web pages is to encourage the widest possible participation in the work of the BFG SB.


This section is about providing information in order to support and inform professionals to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and young people. There are links to useful publications and the full inter agency Training calendar in order to develop learning and good practice throughout the BFG SB agencies.


We hope you will find the website useful and welcome any comments and suggestions about the website and its contents.
