Working with Small Steps to help new parents and carers think about keeping their children safe from the start.

The Safe Network has joined up with Small Steps to provide simple, straight forward advice for new parents and carers to think about from the first time their child joins the family. 

Information is provided through Small Steps magazines distributed in 20 areas across England as well as their website.
