Coram Children’s Legal Centre’s Child Protection Project
Coram Children’s Legal Centre has launched a new service for frontline professionals working with children and families. The Child Protection Project is a CCLC project funded by a grant from the Department of Education’s Improving Outcomes for Children, Young People and Families’ fund and has been endorsed by a number of national organisations including ADCS and LGA. The CPP is aimed at providing all frontline practitioners with advice and information on the law in respect of child protection and safeguarding.
The Child Protection Project comprises free telephone advice line, an interactive website at www.protectingchildren.org.uk and online and in-person training packages.
Our national telephone line can provide free information and advice on the law provided. Advice is provided by an experienced family law solicitor who can answer both general queries and also talk through individual cases on a confidential basis.
The website offers information on a broad range of child protection and safeguarding topics, including LA obligations towards children leaving care, the impact of domestic violence, substance misuse and parental mental health on children and current issues in the news, together with a useful interactive map of the child protection system and information on practical skills such as how to write a statement for Court and how to make a good child protection referral.
Access to the website is currently FREE to registered users until October 2012.
In-person training programmes and CPD accredited online training programmes are also available to organisations (single and multi-agency) and cover subjects such as understanding children’s rights, information sharing and legal frameworks for children and young people.
Advice line: 0207 636 1245 (Monday to Friday 9.30am – 5.30pm)
