Will the Police and other agencies be involved?

If a crime has been committed against a child, the police will also be involved.

They will work with the social worker so together they can decide the best way to keep the child safe from harm.

Children and Families staff work closely with other agencies that work with children and their families.

We believe it is very important to work together to protect children from harm and all these partner agencies work to the same procedures and guidelines, and keep in close contact.
