The Association of Child Protection Professionals is a registered charity and membership association.

We provide education and professional development opportunities for those working in child protection.

40 years at the heart of child protection

This year we are proud to be celebrating our 40th year. Through sharing knowledge, research and examples of best practice, what started as a small inter-professional membership association grew and today we are the only multi-disciplinary professional membership association, with charitable status of its kind.
