The Safe Network

In early 2011 CAPT's Making the Link project joined forces with the Safe Network - a joint programme with the NSPCC and Children England which provides tailored safeguarding support to the voluntary and community sector. Our involvement will strengthen Safe Network’s ability to support local community groups in preventing serious accidents to children.
