New Chapters and Features
Chapter Name Details
Information Sharing This new chapter replaces the previous, similarly titled chapter and reflects the EU GDPR and Data Protection Act 2018. Please reference.
Good Practice Supporting the Voice of the Child This chapter seeks to emphasise the statutory and practical requirement of listening to and getting the views and opinions of children and young people - not only on a case by case basis and to fulfil a legislative requirement, but as a pre-requisite of providing effective safeguarding systems. This is clearly promoted in Working Together to Safeguard Children.
Child Protection Conferences This chapter provides an overview of Conferences and identifies the various types of conferences that are convened; membership of Conferences; electronic and digital recording of conferences; involvement of and exclusion of conferences and reports from agencies. The chapter reflects the Data protection Act 2018 and should be read in conjunction with Multi-Agency Child Protection Standards and Multi-Agency Child Protection Standards. Please reference.
Children of Parents with Learning Disabilities This chapter replaces a previous and similar chapter and reflects current good approaches and practice. It identifies key issues, and indicators of concern whilst recognising that assessments of risk need to be undertaken by specialist / experienced staff who have knowledge and skills of working with parents who have learning disability and who can work in a way that enables effective communication and time to undertake assessments.
