What you'll find in this section
Keeping practitioners across our partner agencies informed on the latest developments in safeguarding, as well as equipping them with key information to help them in their roles, is a key priority of the Mid and West Wales Safeguarding Board. Priority 1 in our Annual Plan 2020-21 encompasses this area of focus.
With this in mind, we have developed this bespoke page as a hub for resources to assist you in your role as a social worker, police officer, health worker, or in another key role in which safeguarding is a key element.
As well as utilising this page for helpful links and downloads for safeguarding resources, we recommend that you take a look around the rest of the CYSUR site to keep up to date with safeguarding developments which impact your practice.
