Working Together to Safeguard Children 2013

This week the Department of Education have released the final version of the new guidance:

Working together to safeguard children: A guide to inter-agency working to safeguard and promote the welfare of children

“This guidance aims to help professionals understand what they need to do, and what they can expect of one another, to safeguard children. It focuses on core legal requirements, making it clear what individuals and organisations should do to keep children safe.” (page 7)

The new guidance, which replaces Working Together 2010, will come into effect on the 15th April 2013.  Over the next few weeks the child protection experts and staff at the will be busy reviewing and updating all our child protection training courses to ensure they remain fully complaint with the latest guidance.
