'Don't make assumptions': children's and young people's views of the child protection system and messages for change

Research commissioned by the Office of the Children’s Commissioner and carried out by a team from the University of East Anglia, it documents children and young people’s views of the child protection system and considers how these views might contribute to improving responses to abuse and neglect.

It aimed to gather the views of children and young people living with their parents, who all had a child protection plan in place. The research comes during a period when the child protection system in England is being reviewed.
