“We all have a responsibility to promote the welfare of children and protect those at the risk of harm. It is important that young people can grow up in an environment that is as safe and stable as we would want for our own children. That’s why we have changed the law to create a stronger safeguarding system, placing greater accountability on the key professionals involved so vulnerable children can get the support and protection they deserve” Nadim Zahawi – Children and Families Minister.
This new course is designed to ensure that Local Authority lawyers are aware of all the statutory provisions relating to their duty to safeguard children and are fully up to date with the important changes which have been made to the Safeguarding and Serious Case Review legislative framework; to understand why those changes have been made and how the transition to the new statutory regime will take place.
