Working together to safeguard children
Document that sets out a national framework of guidance on how all agencies and professionals should work together to promote children's welfare and protect them from abuse and neglect.
It is aimed at those who work in the health and education services, the police, social services, the probation service, and others whose work brings them into contact with children and families.
It is relevant to those working in the statutory, voluntary and independent sectors. It replaces the previous version of Working Together Under the Children Act 1989, which was published in 1991.
