Neglect Campaign 2018

NSPCC/LSCB launches Neglect Matters campaign to raise awareness of child neglect in Bedfordshire

The NSPCC and Bedfordshire safeguarding boards are launching a Neglect Matters campaign to combat child and adolescent neglect across the county.

The children’s charity has teamed up with local authorities and health organisations to push the issue of neglect into the public eye and let Bedfordshire’s young people know where to find help.

Neglect Matters aims to raise awareness about the signs and symptoms of neglect. The campaign will help people to recognise abuse and know how to report it. Equally, we want those who need help to reach out for support whenever they can.

We have been working with young people to create a guide and posters which provides information and support about neglect and where to go for help. These can be downloaded below and  will be made available locally.
