Information for all practitioners working with children and their families in Staffordshire
This section is designed to support practitioners and managers from all statutory, voluntary and third sector organisations to access important information and guidance about how we can effectively work together to promote better outcomes for children.
Working Together to Safeguard Children 2015 is statutory guidance which sets out how organisations and individuals should work together to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and young people in accordance with the Children Act 1989 and the Children Act 2004.
It is important for all practitioners, operational and senior managers responsible for providing services to children and their families, to fully understand their individual and organisational responsibilities and duties.
Please see 'Latest News' for the consultation on Working Together 2018.
