Loughton – no big changes

Children’s Minister, Tim Loughton, has reassured workers that he expects “no significant changes” to safeguarding and child protection duties. This includes Section (s) 47: Section 17: Section 20: He reiterates that Professor Eileen Munro is to recommend ways that safeguarding and child protection can be improved and made stronger. Concern had been expressed by local authority social workers following a review by DCLG (Department for Communities and Local Government) into the duties and responsibilities on local authorities.
