Child Care Sectors

Local Authorities

The local authority has responsibility for the safety and welfare of children and young peopleĀ for all child care sectors . In order to carry out this role the local authority must work in partnership with other public organisations, the private and voluntary sector, and service users and carers.

The local authority has a particular duty to ensure that they integrate services with partner agencies in order to deliver effective and efficient interventions. Such partnership will assist in:

  • The early identification of difficulties so that children and their families get the help they need at the point it is needed
  • Ensuring a rapid and appropriate response to situations where a child is in need of protection.

Health Services

The safety and the health of a child are intertwined aspects of their wellbeing. Many ‘health’ interventions also equip a child to ‘stay safe’. All organisations commissioning or providing healthcare, whether in the NHS or third sector, independent healthcare sector or social enterprises, should ensure there is board level focus on the needs of children and that safeguarding children is an integral part of their governance systems.

These principles apply to all NHS health services and health service providers in both the NHS and independent healthcare settings. The aim is to ensure that all children and young people receive appropriate and timely early intervention and therapeutic interventions.

All health professionals working directly with children and young people should ensure that safeguarding and promoting their welfare forms an integral part of all elements of the care they offer. Other health professionals who come into contact with children, parents and carers in the course of their work also need to be fully informed about their responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and young people. This is important as even though a health professional may not be working directly with a child, they may be seeing their parent, carer or other significant adult and have knowledge which is relevant to a child’s safety and welfare.

Criminal Justice Organisations

Child care sectors – The police, probation services, offender managers, governers and directors of all prison establishments, secure training centre staff and youth offending teams, all have important roles to play in the safeguarding of children.

This section outlines the roles and responsibilities of each organisation, based on Working Together to Safeguard Children, 2013. It also contains Circulars, links to legislation and guidance as prescribed by each professionals organisation in relation to the care and protection of children in England and Wales. Working Together to Safeguard Children has laid out specific guidance on a number of issues which will require police involvement.

Schools & Further Education

Schools and Further Eucation institutions have a duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of pupils under the Education Act 2002. They should create and maintain a safe learning environment for children and young people and identify where there are child welfare concerns and take action to address them, in partnership with other organisations where appropriate.

Early Years Services

Early years services – children’s services, nurseries, childminders, preschools, playgroups and holiday and out-of-hours schemes – all play an important part in the lives of a large number of children. Many childcare providers have considerable experience of working with families where a child needs to be safeguarded from harm, and many local authorities provide, commission or sponsor specific services, including childminders, to work with children in need and their families.

Voluntary & Private Sectors

Voluntary organisations, both local and national, and private sector providers play an important role in delivering services for children and young people, including in early years provision, family support services, youth work and children’s social care and healthcare. Many voluntary organisations are skilled in preventative work and may be well placed to reach the most vulnerable children, young people and families. The vast majority work in partnership and will play an important part in protecting and supporting a child and their family.

Faith Communities

Churches, other places of worship and faith-based organisations provide a wide range of activities for children and young people. They are some of the largest providers of children and youth work, and have an important role in safeguarding children and supporting families.Religious leaders, staff and volunteers who provide services in places of worship and in faith-based organisations will have various degrees of contact with children. Like other organisations that work with children, churches, other places of worship and faith-based organisations need to have appropriate arrangements in place for safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children.


We will be happy to discuss the requirements of any Organisation from the Child Care Sector and give the right Support you need.

Who is Responsible for Child Care Protection?

The child protection standards are applicable to all public bodies, organisations, professionals and persons who provide statutory services to children. They also establish a framework of best practice in child protection for voluntary, community and independent sector organisations and practitioners (including counsellors and therapists working in a private capacity) who work with or have significant contact with children and young people. They should also help families and members of the public understand how services work to protect children and the important contribution they themselves can make to the safeguarding of children and young people.
