 The Child Protection Register

 

Purpose of the Child Protection Register

The principal purpose of the register is to make agencies and professionals aware of those children who are judged to be at continuing risk of significant harm and in need of actual safeguarding through an Inter-Agency Child Protection Plan. The Custodians of the Register ensure that Protection Plans are formally reviewed, initially after 3 months and subsequently every 6 months.

The Register provides a confidential central point of speedy enquiry during office hours (out-of-office hours, this is directly to the relevant Children's Home by those who have authority to access the Register and via the Co-ordinator on Stand-By Duty for staff who are not so designated). This facility enables staff concerned about a child to ascertain whether the child is the subject of a Child Protection Plan.

Children may be harmed by physical, emotional or sexual abuse or neglect which may take place in a variety of settings. A Childs name can only be placed on the Child Protection Register by the decision of a Case Conference. The category of registration reflects the concerns relating to the particular child.

Another purpose of the register is to allow for the collation and analysis of information locally and regionally. There were 101 initial Child Protection Case Conferences convened during the year. This resulted in the names of 190 children being placed on the Child Protection Register.

In any attempt to reconcile these figures it must be understood:

- that there may be more than one child considered in the Case Conference;

- a child may be registered in more than one category of abuse;

    We are indeed aware of Article 170: Privacy for children involved in certain proceedings. but also Section 62: Publication of material relating to legal proceedings (251.252.) Which means that nothing can be published that may identify any CHILD during court process, only after. However, Council's can publish photographs and detailed profiles of children online in advertising them for adoption.
