child protection services

Scottish Government document providing guidance to all professionals and volunteers working or in contact with children suspected of being trafficked and intended to supplement local interagency child protection procedures.

This podcast presents Professor Andrew Cooper of the Tavistock Clinic, talking about childcare social work, emotional dynamics and modern organisations.

This podcast is part of the Glasgow School of Social Work Research Seminar Series. In this podcast Dr. Pam Green Lister talks about interagency child protection work.

To coincide with the publication of Lord Laming's report into the death of Victoria Climbie, NCH sets out our views on child protection and the future for children's services in England. NCH believes we must examine the whole range of children's services, not just the child protection system on its own because it does not exist in isolation in the real world.

Produced on behalf of the London Safeguarding Children Board and in conjunction with the Essex Safeguarding Children Board, the aim of this document is to provide practice guidance to support practitioners working with children and families affected by adults viewing child sexual abuse images – particularly via the Internet; to identify key principles to help inform assessments; to consider some of the practice implications; and to provide an overview of current messages from research and underpinning knowledge.

Leaflet intended to help all those involved in bringing up children protect them from harm by highlighting the problem of children sexually abusing other children, explaining the warning signs to look out for and steps which can be taken to prevent such abuse.

This review directly addresses the practical implications of multiprofessional and multiagency working on the front line. It draws messages from a diffuse range of literature spanning organisational theories, research and practice to offer guidance to practitioners, team leaders and educators. While relating the evidence to historical, theoretical and current policy contexts, it retains a primary interest in the day-to-day experience of professionals in social care, education, health and other areas, and in trying to improve the outcomes for vulnerable children and families.
