A brief overview of what the session will cover

Children themselves rarely engage directly with the child protection system unless they are already referred into the system by a third party adult. New technologies have enabled children to communicate in different ways than previously. Could an ‘app’ facilitate children’s direct access for advice, help and response from the child protection systems such as the MASH. What is required is to co-produce new ways of working at the front door of child protection to extend the current socio-technical framework to improve outcomes for children.
