Safeguarding Children Level 2

The serious case reviews of ‘Baby P’ in London, Daniel Pelka in Coventry are only two examples that highlight the importance of ‘Safeguarding Children’. Although Child Protection Law originally dates back to 1889 (The Children’s Charter), a lot more has to be done to ensure the safety of children.
