All Wales Child Protection Procedures Review Group

The All Wales Child Protection Procedures are an essential part of safeguarding children and promoting their welfare.  The common standards they provide guide and inform child protection practice in each of the  Local and Regional Safeguarding Children Boards across Wales.  They outline the framework for determining how individual child protection referrals, actions and plans are made and carried out.  They are based on the principle that the protection of children from harm is the responsibility of all individuals and agencies working with children and families, and with adults who may pose a risk to children.  Partnership working and communication between agencies is identified as key in order to identify vulnerable children and to help keep them safe from harm and abuse.

The All-Wales Child Protection Procedures were originally written in 2002, and substantially revised in 2008. They are kept up-to-date by the All-Wales Child Protection Review Group (AWCPPRG) which Children in Wales provide secretariat functions for. The group has a mandate and representation from all of Wales’ Local and regional Safeguarding Children Boards and partner agencies. The group also produces supplementary protocols and practice guides, on an All-Wales basis and provide a platform for sharing good practice across Wales.
