Parents urged not to leave their children “Home Alone”

The NSPCC’s urging parents across both Northamptonshire and Peterborough not to risk leaving children on their own this summer if there’s any chance of danger.

NSPCC Chief Executive Peter Wanless said: “Deciding if a child is ready to be left on their own can be a very difficult decision and the summer holidays can be a difficult time for parents and carers as they face increasing childcare pressures.”

“Although there is no minimum age, no child should be left on their own if there is any risk they will come to harm.”

 

Figures revealed in Northants the charity referred more than 40 cases to the county’s police last year and in Cambridgeshire there were 54.
