Child trafficking leaflets
The NSPCC’s Child Trafficking Advice Centre (CTAC) has produced a leaflet, translated into 12 languages, for children who have come to the UK from another country. The leaflet explains: how to ask for help; who to ask for help; what words like “refugee”, “asylum seeker” and “trafficking” mean; what help is available for children who have come to the UK from another country.

Missing Appointments Matter
NHS Nottingham City CCG have commissioned a video animation called Missing Appointments Matter which is aimed at people to encourage them to attend medical appointments, and to take children and adults they care for to their appointments. The animation is aimed at raising awareness about the consequences of missing appointments and to ensure that children and adults get the medical care that they need.
Please click here to watch the animation, and share it with citizens, colleagues, friends and family and use it in training courses. A subtitled version of the video is also available here.
See Something Do Something
Baby Boxes are new parent starter kits that contain quality infant products as well as important information about antenatal, postnatal, neonatal, continuing care and support programs for both mother and child. Each Baby Box is outfitted with a custom, certified non-toxic mattress so that it can be used safely as a bassinet.
Sandwell has been chosen as one of the UK starter sites for Baby Box distribution. Baby Boxes will be launched in Sandwell in October 2016 for women booked at City Hospital.
