Developing an implementation plan and building continuous improvement into your safeguarding systems.
Engaging children and hearing their voices as part of a child-centred culture.

Developing strategies and approaches to identify, assess and minimise risk of harm.
Responding to concerns, disclosures and allegations of abuse.
