The Barnet Safeguarding Children Partnership’s purpose is to ensure that all the agencies in Barnet who work with children and young people work together in their efforts to keep you safe and help you to do well.
The adults who look after you at home or at school or adults who you may meet whether, you are ill or needing help or involved in sport, music or other fun activities or in a faith organisation have a duty to protect you from harm and keep you safe. This applies to your parents or carers, your teachers, faith leaders, police officers, doctors and sport coaches.
We have included some tips and information on issues that affect children and young people. We want all children and young people in Barnet to have happy, safe lives, remember there is always help available if you need it. No young person should suffer alone with the thoughts of suicide.
PAPYRUS aims to create suicide safer communities and one of the ways they do this is through their helpline, HOPELINEUK.
If you or anyone you know is struggling with thoughts of suicide or needs to debrief after a conversation around suicide, please contact HOPELINEUK for free and confidential support and guidance. Call 0800 068 4141 Text 07860 039961 Email firstname.lastname@example.org
