Working Together to Safeguard Children

Working Together to Safeguard Children sets out how individuals and organisations should work together to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. The guidance has been updated since the previous version, which was published in 1999, to reflect developments in legislation, policy and practice.
The guidance is addressed to all practitioners and front-line managers who have particular responsibilities for safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, and to senior and operational managers in organisations that are responsible for commissioning or providing services to children, young people, parents and carers.
It is also addressed to senior and operational managers in organisations that have a particular responsibility for safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. However, it is not necessary for all practitioners to read every part of the guidance - the table on pages 19-20 sets out which parts of the document are particularly relevant to different roles.
