Safer Snippets 

Safer Snippets

Safer Snippets is a monthly newsletter that was initially produced in response to trainer requests to be kept informed of safeguarding news in a format that is easily accessible. Always at just two pages long, its aim is to be straightforward and succinct.

It is now published at the start of each month, summarising developments from the previous month; back issues can also be found below.

If you have safeguarding news or updates of your own that you would like to be considered for inclusion in the next Safer Snippets, please email:

Theresa Welch, Learning and Development Commissioning Coordinator, Dudley Safeguarding Children Board
