There have been significant shifts in relation to safeguarding and child protection policy in the UK in recent years. Each part of the UK is engaged in its own programme of reform. Devolution has added a new dynamic to these developments. This book is an edited volume outlining recent developments in England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Channel Islands. The book concludes with a chapter in which the editors compare and contrast the various reform programmes across the UK and considers the extent to which child protection policy is converging or diverging. Intended as a resource for those who are training to work with children and young people and their families; for those working in children's services in Scotland and for academics and policy makers this volume provides an invaluable oversight to the origins of the UK's child protection policies.
