NSPCC launches free downloadable child protection toolkit

NSPCC launches free downloadable child protection toolkit

UK children's charity the NSPCC (National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children) has unveiled a toolkit to help Local Safeguarding Children Boards (LSCB) improve training across health, the police, social care and education.

The free tool will help the boards evaluate inter-agency child protection training. Called Connect, Share and Learn: Evaluating the Outcomes of Inter-agency Training to Safeguard Children, the toolkit has been developed by academics at the University of Bristol and involves a set of downloadable questionnaires.

NSPCC LSCB adviser Sue Woolmore said: "A number of serious case reviews have highlighted the importance of inter-agency and inter-professional working. This free toolkit will provide LSCBs with evidence about how effective their training courses are, and help them to make improvements."

The toolkit is backed by a message board feature where those who download the questionnaire can share ideas.
