The Safeguarding Children Research Initiative is a programme of research studies on child abuse and neglect jointly funded by the Department of Health and the Department for Education. The studies were commissioned as part of the government response to the inquiry following the death of Victoria Climbié. The purpose is to provide a stronger evidence base for the development of policy and practice to improve the protection of children in England.
Following the completion of the research programme, a publication was produced to bring together the key messages and implications for all professionals and policy makers involved in the safeguarding process. Safeguarding Children Across Services: Messages from Research on Identifying and Responding to Child Maltreatment provides accessible and evidence-based research findings in a distilled form for a range of professionals, in order to help inform and shape their day-to-day work.
A publication bringing together a wide-ranging body of government-funded research from the Safeguarding Children Research Initiative on safeguarding children from neglect and abuse in England and Wales.
