Our blog series aims to provoke debate, encourage sharing of knowledge, and inspire innovative thoughts about the challenges facing child protection and adult safeguarding professionals and the children, families and people they serve. In particular, we like to reflect on how far we've come as a sector and celebrate the wins achieved, whilst also looking forward to the huge amount of work there is still to do to keep children, young people and vulnerable adults safe from harm.
