Apart from the nursery care workers in the case study, other professionals who have been trained in how to deal with suspected child abuse or maltreatment should be involved. These professionals will be part of local authorities such as the police, the local social services and the local safeguarding childrens board. All the professionals involved will work as a multi-disciplinary team and their goal will be to support Jessica as much as possible whilst encouraging her to describe the truth of the abuse/maltreatment. It is really important that all local authorities involved work closely together because a lack of communication may cause errors which were seen in the case of Victoria Climbie.

LISA WOODCOCK UNIT 6 – Working together for the benefit of children and young people 2) Barriers to integrated working / multi agency working Common barriers to effective integrated or multi agency working Recent legislation in the UK states that anyone working with children or young people must all work in partnership to provide effective support and learning to ensure the child develops to their full potential. Early years childcare providers are in a prime position to support children and their families as they work with children often from a very young age and are therefore often the first people to notice if extra support is needed. However, there are barriers to effective multi agency working. The people involved in working together often come from very diverse backgrounds with different pay scales, terms and conditions and different funding streams.

Analyse how national and local guidelines, policies and procedures for safeguarding affect day to day work with children and young people. As well as having a safeguarding policy of our own at school, I am aware that Stoke-on-Trent City Council has its own safeguarding policy. This requires all organisations that work with children to co-operate to keep children safe from harm.

They monitor the success of the work that is done by local agencies to guarantee that all practitioners within the area have a clear understanding of safeguarding procedures, policies and requirements.
