Over the past few months the content on our website has been updated and our new website will be launched very soon. You shouldn’t see any
disruption to access it will just look a bit different. One of the new features
is a topics and resources section for practitioners in which you’ll be able to select the topic
you’re interested in whether that be CSE, FGM or Neglect and from that one page

topic from basic information, local policies and procedures, to national
guidance, latest news and learning and development opportunities. We welcome
feedback on the site and if you have anything you want to see included do get in touch.
