Safeguarding Children, Young People and Families

First Edition


October 2021 | 200 pages | Learning Matters
Keeping children and young people safe is everybody’s responsibility. This requires health, social care and education professionals to make sense of complex family situations that are placing a child or young person at risk of harm. This is no easy feat. The actions we take matter and we need to get this right if we are to truly make things better and improve outcomes for children and young people.  Using case studies, reflective questions and checklists for practice, this hands-on guide will provide you with the knowledge and skills you need to effectively and confidently make a difference to the lives of children and young people. 

This series of books from Learning Matters is aimed at busy social work and health care practitioners, particularly in the context of integrated health and social care, who are looking to enhance their skills and extend their knowledge. Written from a practical point of view, they have clear links to both qualifying training as well as CPD. They are up-to-date, accessible and totally skills focused.

This has been recommended for students on two of the courses I teach on to read. It includes relevant, contemporary case studies (including COVID-19) which my students have found invaluable.

This text is accessible and I like how it includes chapters on the child's voice and resilience which I feel are key components in safeguarding practice.
