Safeguarding Young People during the COVID-19 pandemic
Child protection laws and responsibilities remain in force.
Youth Genesis Trust (Ltd) still has a duty to promote the welfare and safeguarding of children and young people. Local Authorities are still managing safeguarding concerns and will continue to follow the immediate protection procedures set out in Working Together to Safeguard Children 2018.
Youth Genesis Trust’s body of work has moved from face-to-face engagement to online support until Government guidance has been reviewed and safe to return. Youth Genesis Trust will still be working to our Safeguarding policy and in line with our Social Media policy and working to our usual processes and procedures should a concern be raised.
