Keeping children safe during lockdown
With the pressures on the NHS, many parents

are worried about a trip to A&E with their child.  
With home being an accident hotspot for younger children, it’s good to know there are small

things you can do that make a big difference.
If you put these things high up out of harm’s

way (and curious little hands), you are winning when it comes to keeping your child safe:
Hot things like drinks and hair straighteners or wands – decide where your safe spots are that you can put hot things down out of reach.
Cleaning things – we’ve never been so clean,

but make sure it’s all stored safely away.
Button batteries – they can do a lot of harm to

a child’s insides if swallowed, so check products, spares and flats and put them out of reach.

Shropshire Telford & Wrekin Beam – Phone-based support

Over the last 2 weeks we have been working on how we can continue to provide support for the young people who access our drop-in services. 

From 2nd April 2020, Shropshire Telford & Wrekin Beam will be offering a call-back telephone service.

Please note that we are not offering a crisis or instant response service.

The support being offered is purely phone-based.  We cannot provide support via email, text/messaging apps or on video calling platforms. 

Accessing call-back support:

Young people can email us at AskBeam@childrenssociety.org.uk asking for support.  Once they have emailed, an automatic response will ask for some more information.  When this has been completed, a team member will contact them to discuss what help they need, and when the best time would be for a practitioner to call them.

Calls will be booked in with our practitioners within our usual drop-in times.

 

Information for Parents/carers:

If you feel your child(ren)/young person would benefit from our support, please take a look at our website https://www.childrenssociety.org.uk/beam/coronavirus.

For young people who are aged 13 and under, you will need to contact us on their behalf via AskBeam@childrenssociety.org.uk.
