The number of children entering the child protection system has risen dramatically in the last three years, and the implications for children’s services and partner agencies is huge. A crucial first look at the impact of the 2011 Munro Review on child protection in the UK, this volume examines topics such as whether local safeguarding boards provide adequate scrutiny to ensure child safety, how early help at the local level might reduce the number of children reaching critical stages, and whether deregulation can provide better outcomes for the most vulnerable. A helpful guide to understanding the reforms Munro has required, Effective Safeguarding for Children and Young People should be of interest to anyone involved in child protection programs.
