Any individual, group or organisation working with children needs to understand current legislation, guidance, recommended policy and procedure about safeguarding children.
Ealing Council's website has a section on safeguarding children and child protection that explains what to do and who to contact if you have any concerns about a child at any time whether you are a professional, parent or member of the public.
If you are a childcare provider or other professional working with children, our Safeguarding Publications page offers the Ealing Child Protection Procedures (published 2011), Safe Recruitment Guidance, and CRB Checks in Ealing flowchart.
Ealing Community and Voluntary Service (ECVS), together with Ealing Council are working on a project called the Child Protection & Safe Workforce Project which offers information, advice and support as well as training to groups and individuals working with children and families in the community or voluntary sector. ECVS have a dedicated page on their website offering more information about the project and what's on offer as well as links to key publications and resources.
