Keeping your family safe
The Family and Parenting Institute have produced a booklet, that provides information and guidance on parental responsibility and the law.
The NSPCC have produced additional literature about leaving your child home alone.
Please note that these booklets are for information and guidance, and are not intended to replace legal counsel. If you need legal advice, please visit The Law Society, to find a solicitor to meet your needs.
It is also important to be aware about the many issues concerning the safety of your child. The Royal Borough's Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB) , have online information for parents, children and young people, on topics such as:
- drugs and alcohol
- mobile and internet safety
- mental and emotional well-being
- domestic violence
For further information see the LSCB webpages.
