The NSPCC are supporting this work and it has been agreed to use their PANTS Campaign as the focus of the project work for those working with younger children (0-8).
As a starting point, we are undertaking a survey to establish a baseline of the current knowledge and use of the PANTS Campaign across the sector from which we can target activity and measure the outcomes of the project.
