One of our strategic objectives is that we communicate and engage in a variety of ways to support professionals in their work and to influence the wider community in the part they can play in safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children.
Arrangements for Handling Allegations
Please follow this link for the Arrangements for Managing Allegations of Abuse Against People Who Work With Children or Those Who Are in A Position of Trust procedure.
It is essential that any allegation of abuse made against a person who works with children and young people including those who work in a voluntary capacity are dealt with fairly, quickly, and consistently, in a way that provides effective protection for the child, and at the same time supports the person who is the subject of the allegation. The framework for managing allegations is set out in 'Working Together to Safeguard Children [WT] Appendix 5: A guide to inter-agency working to safeguard and promote the welfare of children 2010, and Safeguarding Children and Safer Recruitment in Education 2007.'
Further details on managing allegations against local authority foster carers and local authority residential workers, can be found on the procedures section of our website
