Safeguarding Young People 21 Feb 2006

While as many young people aged 11 and above are on child protection registers as younger children, research suggests that older children are less likely to receive a child protection response. Little is known about what influences practitioners when making decisions about referring young people and what happens when referrals are made. Research in other countries have also highlighted the need for age-specific approaches to child maltreatment but this issue has received scant attention in the UK.
