We provide support, representation, and professional development for those working in child protection and safeguarding.
We believe access to research, sharing expertise, engaging with complexity, and informed policy-making, produce better outcomes for children and families.
Our vision is a world in which all children can grow up in safety and security, without risk of being abused or neglected.

40 years at the heart of child protection

In 2019 we celebrated our 40th year. Through sharing knowledge, research and examples of best practice, what started as a small inter-professional membership association grew until today we are the only multi-disciplinary professional membership association, with charitable status, of its kind.
