This section provides information and guidance for professionals, practitioners and managers to support your work with children, young people and families. This is designed to help you keep up to date with developments in safeguarding practice and provides information across a range of issues and how to respond to them.

Policies and procedures provide the framework within which an organisation and its staff (employees and volunteers) operate. They define what an organisation does and how it does it. Clear policies and procedures support: effective decision making; provision of guidelines on what employees and volunteers can and cannot do; what decisions they can make and what activities are appropriate.

All organisations working with children and young people and / or their parents and carers should have robust policies and procedures which will ensure that: children and young people are safe; workers know and understand their roles and responsibilities; and workers know how to respond appropriately if they have concerns about a child or young person’s safety or welfare.

Ensuring that agencies and professionals work effectively together is essential when working with children and young people.
