Protecting children – information for employees

Everyone who works with children and families as health professionals, social workers, in education, youth services or any other role has a vital part to play in keeping children safe.

A clear and consistent understanding of what is meant by terms such as child abuse and neglect and child protection is essential. It’s also vital that every employee who works with children or their parents has a good working knowledge of child protection guidance and procedures and clear information on reporting concerns.
