These studies aim to identify how children may be better safeguarded, in three key areas: identification and initial response to abuse, effective interventions after abuse or its likelihood have been identified, and effective inter-agency and inter-disciplinary working to safeguard children.
In each of these areas the research has encompassed a specific focus on neglect and emotional abuse, significant elements in the maltreatment of Victoria Climbié and the more recent tragic death of Peter Connelly.
