Safeguarding Young People

Surrey Youth Focus: Let’s work together to keep young people safe in Surrey

On behalf of and funded by Surrey County Council, we are setting up the Surrey Youth Focus Safeguarding Network in 2017 to help organisations who offer activities or services to young people in Surrey to safeguard young people. 

We are reaching out to all charities, voluntary organisations, businesses or other organisations who deliver services to children* in Surrey.

(* The definition of young people we are using here is age 11-18 or 11-25 for young people with Special Educational Needs and Care leavers)

To find out more contact or sign up to the Safeguarding network.

Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub

The Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub – MASH is now the single point of contact for reporting safety concerns for a child, young person or adult.  


In 2015 Surrey Youth Focus in partnership with Surrey County Council brought 85 youth organisations together for the Surrey Safeguarding Young People Conference.  Please see the presentations and notes.
