The Birmingham Safeguarding Children Board (BSCB), a partnership of agencies who work together to prevent child abuse and neglect, have launched a campaign & video to raise awareness that:

keeping children safe is everybody’s business’.  (CLICK here to go to their website)

The campaign focuses on raising community awareness of what to do if you are worried about a child and most importantly to encourage members of the public to call Birmingham City Council’s Children’s Advice & Support Service to report their concerns, so action can be taken to safeguard and protect the child. 

There were over 58,000 children identified as needing protection from abuse in the UK in 2016.  Most cases go unreported, leaving children to suffer in silence.  The BSCB wants to make sure that organisations are in a position to support families and to do this well, we need the public to be able to tell us early, when they spot signs of distress or concern.  This is about empowering communities in Birmingham to recognise the signs and know what they can do to help stop child abuse.
