The purpose of the Keep Me Safe Strategy is to provide consistent and co- ordinated messages to practitioners across Herefordshire and Worcestershire about a particular safeguarding theme to reduce the numbers of children who are seriously injured or die across Herefordshire and Worcestershire. Through encouraging and supporting partners in all agencies who care for or support families with babies and children, including hospital and community staff (Health Visitors, midwives, mental health nurses) , GP’s, Children’s Social Care, Police and Early Years settings to provide clear consistent and coordinated messages across Herefordshire and Worcestershire about a particular safeguarding theme.
The ‘strapline’ for the Strategy-‘Keep Me Safe’ can be utilised for any safeguarding theme, for example, ‘Keep Me Safe from… Bullying’, ‘Keep Me Safe when… I am On-Line’. The themes can be discussed with children, as part of wider work to hear the voice of the child and understand the child’s lived experience.
