Detail of outcome
Summary of responses we received, along with the government’s response outlining the next steps.
We are seeking views on:
- significant revisions to Working Together to Safeguard Children, the statutory guidance on what’s expected of organisations to safeguard and promote the welfare of children
- 2 sets of statutory instruments (regulations) needed to support the new arrangements
- new child death review guidance
These revisions reflect the legislative changes introduced through the Children and Social Work Act 2017. Following this consultation, the government proposes to update and replace the current statutory guidance, Working Together to Safeguard Children 2015.
