First launched in 2017, the BSCP began a campaign to raise awareness that ‘keeping children safe is everybody’s business’.
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.
Analysis by the NSPCC estimates that half a million children a year suffer abuse in the UK. Most cases go unreported, leaving children to suffer in silence. We want to empower communities in Birmingham to recognise the signs and know what they can do to help stop child abuse.
