What to do if you're worried a child is being abused 2003 is national guidance that brings together the content from working together to safeguard children and the framework for the assessment of children in need and their famillies 2000.
NB: page 25 or pg23 in the pdf reader of the Working Together to Safeguard Children document provides a table that explains the relevant sections to read in relation to role and responsibilities.

The protection of childrens act 1999 is the law that ensures settings do not offer employment that involves regular contact with children paid or unpaid where listed as unsuitable to work with children - The CRB disclosure form. The criminal records bureau is the central point for accessing the records kept on two lists - the Department of Eduation list and the Department of Heath list. The ISA independant safeguarding authority is the organisational body charged with the responsibility to check the suitability of those wanting to work with children & young people.

Hi, im just started this unit and perhaps being a bit dumb but should i just outline all the legislations etc or just the ones appicable to northern ireland - which is where i live?
Im finding it all a bit confusing trying to work out which are applicable here and which ones cover the whole of the uk - so thinking perhaps bung in brief outline of everything!
