Online Research & Resources

On this page, we would like to provide you with a number of useful research papers and resource tools on safeguarding issues.  Please have a browse over the documents in the download boxes below.

The NSPCC website is a very useful service which provides child protection resources for anyone working to safeguard children. You can also sign up for email alerts to keep up to date on latest news on new policies, practice and research.

The Centre for Excellence and Outcomes website provides high-quality research, evidence and data to help those working in children’s services improve the lives of all children and young people, in particular those who are most vulnerable.
