Government announces new child protection guidelines

The government has announced new guidelines for teachers, social workers, police and health workers who have contact with children.
Aimed at Local Safeguarding Children Board partners the recommendations are an update of earlier guidance devised to protect minors from harm.
Children's minister Delyth Morgan has urged all agencies "to look again at this issue and use this guidance to ensure they are doing everything they can in their local area".
Safeguarding children is not just about taking them away from a harmful situation, "but taking early and effective action to help prevent children from being put in danger in the first place", she noted.
