Hi, welcome to silkysteps :) all the organisations are aiming for the same outcome ie. for the child or young person to have a successful, positive and rewarding life.They each work in different establishments, places or environments with children & YP that come to them or contact them in different ways and for differing reasons via personal & external factors.

There is a very informative thread here that helps introduce the professionals involved with abuse and harm.

The 'About us' and what we do page of NSPCC will also help.

People you may meet is a booklet for parents that lists a range of professionals and is good to see what is involved with each role, the pages of nationalcareerservice.gov.uk also lists job profiles, their roles and responsibilities - Health visitor


Best wishes, enjoy silkysteps

This may help a little and add on whatever you think is necessary.

All organisations who work around children and young people have a role and a responsibility to uphold when a child or young person has been abused or harmed. They have a duty under the Children Act 1989 and Children Act 2004 to promote and safeguard the welfare of vulnerable children.

Schools and further education colleges; professionals in education e.g. teachers, schools nurses, teaching assistants and senco’s play a crucial role in helping to identify welfare concerns and potential indicators of abuse or neglect at an early stage. A designated safeguarding officer at school should ensure that cases of suspected abuse or neglect are reported to the appropriate agencies when necessary & act as a source of support and advice when needed within their educational establishment.
Health services; professionals working in the health services will be responsible for contributing to any enquiries from other professionals concerning a child’s safety and well being, whilst liaising closely with other agencies about these concerns, planning support for children and young people who are at risk of significant harm i.e. children living in households with substance abuse and/or domestic violence. Planning and responding to the needs of vulnerable children and young people, helping to ensure that children who have been abused and their parents have access to services to support them. Being involved and play an active role in child protection conferences in safeguarding children from significant harm and contributing in serious case reviews and their outcomes.
Mental health professionals; practitioners in this area have a duty to seek to determine whether any patient/carer with mental health issues who are caring for a child or young person, and consider the impact on that child due to their condition and whether this requires a referral to children’s services. Mental health employees must be conscious of the possibility of child abuse in parents/carers with mental illness, problems with aggression or violent behaviour. Care programme meetings must include careful deliberation of any needs or risk factors in respect of children and contact with their parent/carer. Close partnership and liaisons between adult mental health services and children’s social care are central to the interests of children and young people’s well being and safety.
Hospitals and community trusts; acute and community trusts are accountable for providing care in general. Employees will come into contact with children and young people throughout the course of their normal work, therefore staff should be trained in order to recognise the possible indicators of child abuse and neglect. They should also know the policies and procedures in the event of suspected abuse. Each trust should have a medical and nursing professional lead that is selected within the organisation; they will deal with the internal reviews, except where they have extensive contact with the child and family involved.
Midwives, nurses and health visitors; these professionals are well placed in the community to recognise a child or family who are in need of support or safeguarding. All nursing, health and midwifery can perform their roles sufficiently provided they are given the appropriate training on child protection issues. A health visitor’s relationship with a family is distinctive as they have access to families during developmental check ups that other professionals may not have. Subsequently, this should allow them to be influential and key players in child protection surveillance.
Police; members of the police force play a series of roles in the detection of and response to child abuse and neglect. They have contact with children and young people in homes, schools and the community as a whole, which places them in an ideal position to identify situations in which maltreatment may be occurring. Police will also receive reports of suspected abuse and neglect, either through calls to the police directly or through their routine contact with the community. Incidents of child abuse may also be behind the scenes of domestic violence therefore police may have opportunities to interview any children present at the scene. In some cases, police may need to protect child protection personnel. Staff members may have to visit homes in isolated areas and deal with unstable or violent people. An accused parent/carer may refuse entry to the home or access to a possible victim, both of which are crucial when determining whether abuse has occurred and whether the child is still at risk of harm

Good luck
