Safeguarding and Protecting Children and Young People

Stafford, Anne | Vincent, Sharon


Additional Information

Book Details


The authors discuss the impact of the major Scottish legislation including the introduction of the Children's Hearing System. They assess the role major inquiries into child deaths have played in shaping policy and examine the effectiveness of recent arrangements designed to keep children safe from adults who may pose a danger to them in the community. Current policy in this area focuses on meeting the needs of all children as a way of also addressing the needs of those deemed to be at most risk. The book concludes by considering what these developments might mean for the protection of children and young people who have been abused or are at risk of abuse in future.
