I've included info on how it is a welfare requirement along with your procedure, how it protects not only the children from neglect and abuse but also yourself and any staff you have working with you if an allegation was made against you. My brain has gone blank and im really struggling

 

Hope this helps and then someone can point me in the right direction

 

Thanks :o

How about the benefits for parents - it demonstrates that you understand what to do and will help and support their child, also their child is protected while in your care - because you get CRB checks for the household, and don't leave them unsupervised while you have building work etc etc

And so that you can be confident that you will act appropriately in the unlikely case that you suspect a child of being abused/neglected. You will know who to call and to write to in what timeframe, and be able to provide good evidence for other professionals to act upon (social services, police etc.)

 

The only time I thought a child MIGHT need help I took out my policy and it calmed me down because I knew exactly the course of action I should take. I felt much more confident because I had an up to date, accurate Safeguarding Policy.

 

New computer since i did the DHC or I'd be able to give a fuller answer.
