Understanding child protection issues are often complicated and frustrating.

From disputes between parents to court proceedings, you’ll find the resources here to help you do your best for the child.






Social Work

Lots of professionals struggle when it comes to child protection issues. They are rarely easy. Sometimes you are the first person to be told a child is being harmed or know a child has been hurt. The urge to protect them is often very strong but you know there are procedures to follow. The Safeguarding Academy puts the essential resources at the fingertips of professionals from sectors that involves the care of children.


We know it’s not easy

I am Kate Young. I’ve worked in the child care legal sector for over 15 years. I know how hard it can be to get it right for the child. I see and speak to carers, social workers, nursery and health workers about the early intervention they take to protect children.
When it gets really bad, I am at court fighting to protect children from the harm they have suffered at the hands of their carers.

For those times when you just need to talk to someone, our Safeguarding Academy community is the place to be. Share experiences with other professionals and ask for guidance in a peer environment.
