Chapter Name Details
Procedure for Updating this Manual The dates for the next update have been added, and contact details updated for submitting amendments in Trafford.
Agency Roles and Responsibilities Section 3, People in Positions of Trust has been updated as a result of a revision to the statutory guidance Working Together to Safeguard Children. Policies for responding to allegations against a person who works with children must now cover situations where an individual has behaved or may have behaved in a way that indicates they may not be suitable to work with children. This is to capture concerns around transferable risk; for example where a person who works with children is involved in a domestic abuse incident at home and this may have implications for their suitability to work with children.
