NYSCP throughout the year will be running and supporting various safeguarding campaigns.

#AskMe…Have the Conversation

#AskMe….. Have the Conversation is a campaign aimed at professionals across North Yorkshire to encourage them to have conversations with new and expectant parents about how they are feeling about a number of aspects of having and caring for a baby.

Having a baby is a life changing event that brings many joys and challenges. Some parents may find it difficult to share with professionals that they are struggling, therefore it is crucial for all frontline practitioners who come into contact with new partners to have the confidence to explore with them how they are feeling and coping with the changes and challenges parenthood can bring.

#AskMe is about professionals asking the questions of new and expectant parents about how they are feeling and managing with the challenges in a supportive and non-judgmental way.

The campaign is based around a centralised page of key information alongside questions and conversations to consider: Resources alongside social media assets can be accessed here:

Be Aware

North Yorkshire Safeguarding Children Partnership are proud to launch their new Be Aware Knowledge hub.

For more information visit: www.safeguardingchildren.co.uk/beaware

Be Aware is a knowledge hub designed to help prevent and tackle child exploitation in North Yorkshire. It has been used by professionals across North Yorkshire as a key source of knowledge and information about child exploitation since March 2021. The site has now expanded to include vital information designed for young people, parents, carers and local communities so we can all help to tackle child exploitation in North Yorkshire together.

The site has been developed in consultation with young people and families across North Yorkshire, ensuring the information is shaped in ways that will have the biggest impact.

Stories and experiences of child exploitation have also been shared, so families and residents can see what child exploitation can look and feel like, and the impact it can have on victims.

One young person who shared their experiences of child exploitation said “if I tell my story and how everything happened with me, I think they’d be able to listen and, like, understand more about and stupid it is”. His mum, who also shared her story said “if it helps at least one person, then it’s done something hasn’t it?”
 
The site is designed with information designed specifically for parents, carers, young people, local residents and businesses to raise awareness and provide a one-stop shop of information about child exploitation by highlighting:

·       What child exploitation is and what it can look like.
·       Highlighting the different types of child exploitation – including County Lines and online exploitation.
·       How to talk to children about what child exploitation is, and things we can all do to help young people stay safe.
·       What the signs are that child exploitation and grooming may be happening.
·       What help and support is available in North Yorkshire if you are worried.

Day or Night, Sleep Right Campaign #dayornightsleepright

Day or Night, Sleep Right is a key message to those who care for infants across North Yorkshire and York. The ‘Day or Night, Sleep Right’ campaign has been created as a way of providing information regarding the importance of safe sleeping environments for infants to reduce the number who have sadly died as a result of Sudden Unexpected Death in Infancy (SUDI) .

Sometimes families may be away from home and ‘Out of routine’ for example on holiday or visiting relatives. In light of this the Partnerships are urging people to think about safe sleeping arrangements for their infants.

Despite the substantial reduction in the incidences of SUDI in the 1980’s and 1990s via the Back to Sleep campaign, at least 300 infants continue to die suddenly and unexpectedly each year in England and Wales, sadly some of these deaths have occurred in North Yorkshire and York. The Safeguarding Children Partnerships are working with multi-agency partners to help reinforce the key messages of safer sleep to help increase awareness to expectant mothers and fathers, as well as wider carer givers such as grandparents and other family and friends.
