Multi-Agency Safeguarding in a Public Protection World: A Handbook for Protecting Children and Vulnerable Adults
Any practitioner who begins work in the difficult and unique professional arena of public protection feels that they are entering a different world, made up of its own unique processes and guidelines and which, on many occasions, appears to have a language all of its own.
This book for the first time gives practitioners of whatever profession an overview of the major and very different areas of public protection practice.
It aims to translate the processes, guidelines and language to enable them to have a workable understanding of the varied areas of practice that may impact their own working lives.
As well as exploring the law and guidance for each, this book identifies some key learning points and case studies to assist practitioners to better understand the world of public protection in all its guises.
This book contains a foreword by Lord Laming, who chaired the public enquiry into Victoria Climbie's death and conducted a progress report of the project of children in England after the death of Baby P.
All author royalties from the sales of this book will go to charity.
