?  About our Ebooks


Safeguarding Children Across Services brings together the latest evidence on safeguarding children from abuse and neglect. Providing an overview of 15 research projects, it addresses the key policy and practice issues across health, social care and education services and the family justice system.

The authors set out the latest findings on identification of abuse and neglect, methods of prevention, general interventions, and specific interventions for families with additional or complex needs. They examine the evidence on effective inter-agency practice and how it can be improved. Each chapter ends with principal messages for policy and practice.

Providing a critical account of policy, systems and practice, this book is essential reading for anyone who needs the latest guidance in relation to safeguarding children, including policymakers, social workers, professionals in health care and the family justice system and other practitioners working with children.


'This one is as essential as its predecessors, summarising 15 recent studies... that were commissioned after the Victoria ClimbiƩ and Peter Connelly tragedies. It is an essential starting point for anyone considering safeguarding.'
