Project Description

This booklet is intended to support social workers to involve children in the process of safeguarding in a positive, supportive and enabling way. The importance of the child’s voice in child protection practice cannot be underestimated. Not only do children and young people have a clear right to express their views and to be involved in decisions about them, their views and wishes can be a powerful focus for intervening in family life in ways which promote positive change and maximise the potential for positive development.
