Working Together to Safeguard Children: changes to statutory guidance

Closed 31 Dec 2017

Opened 25 Oct 2017

Overview

The Department for Education invites your views on changes to the statutory guidance 'Working Together to Safeguard Children', new 'child death review' guidance, and new regulations.

Why We Are Consulting

This consultation seeks views on significant revisions to ‘Working Together to Safeguard Children’ – the statutory guidance which sets out what is expected of organisations, individually and jointly, to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.

These revisions are being made largely to reflect the legislative changes introduced through the Children and Social Work Act 2017 and new 'child death review' guidance.

 

What Happens Next

The outcomes of the consultation and the department's response will be published on GOV.UK in due course.
