ADCS Safeguarding Pressures Phase 5– National Policy Context

Each phase of the ADCS Safeguarding Pressures Research has provided the national context for children’s social care activity. The quantity of legislation, guidance, reviews and investigations within which children’s services currently operate is too big to include in the report for Phase 5 and has therefore been extracted into this separate document.

There are four sections providing brief summaries to key documents in chronological order starting with the most recent:

1. Legislation and policy

2. Reviews, reports and investigations

3. Inspections

4. Other key areas.
