Advice for practitioners on safeguarding

The government has issued advice for front-line practitioners and managers providing services to children, young people and their parents and carers. Information sharing: advice for practitioners providing safeguarding services aims to help them decide when and how to share personal information legally and professionally. It might also be helpful for practitioners working with adults who are responsible for children who may be in need. Additional advice for anyone who comes into contact with children and families while working, What to do if you’re worried a child is being abused: advice for practitioners, explains the signs of abuse and neglect to look out for and the action to take if you think a child is being abused or neglected.
