22 Aug 2012

Ref: 120122

This thematic inspection was commissioned to evaluate the effectiveness of work to protect disabled children and young people at all stages from early support to the identification of and response to child protection concerns. It examined the actions taken to ensure the protection of disabled children and young people, identifying the key factors which promoted effective protection and the barriers to achieving this. It considered how well local authorities and Local Safeguarding Children Boards evaluate the impact of the work done across agencies and by professionals to ensure the effective protection of disabled children and young people. Please note that where references are made to ‘disabled child’ or ‘children’ in general terms in this report, this refers to children and young people up to the age of 18 years.
