child protection

Report of a research project with the aim of gaining an understanding of contemporary service provision for young people displaying harmful sexual behaviour in a UK context.

Report that sets out clear evidence to show that strengthening access to advocacy can significantly improve the experience and safeguarding of children within the child protection system. It also shows that the lack of a clear legislative driver for advocacy in child protection means that the child’s voice is often not heard and effectively represented, potentially leaving them at risk.

The publication of the Scottish Government’s revised National Child Protection Guidance (2010) seeks to take account of recent policy and practice developments and to reflect the principles, values, and National Practice Model of the Getting It Right for Every Child (GIRFEC) approach.

Paper that gives a brief outline of the principles which govern the care and protection of children by public authorities, the main legislation and guidance in the area of children‟s hearings and local authority child protection systems together with some key statistics.

Thematic inspection which was commissioned to evaluate the effectiveness of work to protect disabled children and young people at all stages from early support to the identification of and response to child protection concerns.

It examined the actions taken to ensure the protection of disabled children and young people, identifying the key factors which promoted effective protection and the barriers to achieving this.

The core aim of the series was to draw together national and international knowledge and professional, policy and research expertise in relation to the management, evaluation and research of everyday multiprofessional intervention to safeguard children. It comprised two linked elements.

The first focused on the issues involved in using adminstrative data routinely collected on children safeguarded in the community to better inform planning and delivery and research.

It also adds to the cumulative research knowledge of these cases helping to identify patterns and deviations from patterns over time.
