Alert Level 4: Lockdown from midnight 19th December

All of Wales is at alert level 4, the national message is to stay at home and only venture out if it is essential, for example to access health care, for shopping, to exercise outdoors, to support someone who is vulnerable, or for work purposes.

You must now work from home. If your role doesn’t allow you to work from home, or it is deemed essential that you attend your place of work, the social distancing regulations remain unchanged – it is vitally important that you follow these regulations.

For the latest information on Coronavirus, please visit our Coronavirus guidance page.


Safeguarding is about protecting children and adults from abuse or neglect and educating those around them to recognise the signs and dangers. One of the most important principles of Safeguarding is that it is everyone’s responsibility. Please see below a range of courses that are available to you.

We also have an advisory Safeguarding e-learning unit which we recommend you complete if you are working in Children's or Adult safeguarding teams. Please be aware that you will need a password and log in details to gain access to this course. Please see our E-learning FAQ's for further information on this.
