Inter-Agency Child Protection Guidance
Fife CPC has produced this guidance to inform and support practitioners from all agencies in Fife who may as part of their normal jobs or who may in the course of their duties identify children at risk. Information within this guidance will help staff recognise and respond appropriately to ensure children receive the right support. This guidance provides a clear framework for action for all those who are or may be involved with the protection of children and young people and promotes inter-agency practice to protect children and young people.
This guidance is designed to complement operational procedures that are held within each individual agency and to which staff must refer when responding to child protection concerns. You can access the following national guidance documents at the links to the Withscotland website -
- National Guidance for Child Protection in Scotland 2014
- National Guidance in relation to notes for practitioners: protecting disabled children from abuse and neglect.
- The ‘Child Protection and Disability Toolkit’
