Working Together 2018
Working Together to Safeguard Children guidance sets out new requirements for improved partnerships to protect children.
Children at risk of abuse or neglect will now be protected through improved partnerships between local police, councils and health services.
Working Together 2018 published on 4th July sets new legal requirements for the three safeguarding partners, who will be required to make joint safeguarding decisions to meet the needs of local children and families.
Senior police, council and health leaders will jointly be responsible for setting out local plans to keep children safe and will be accountable for how well agencies work together to protect children from abuse and neglect.
The new advice is aimed at all professionals who come in to contact with children and families and includes guidance on current threats to child protection, such as sexual and criminal exploitation, gangs and radicalisation.
