Following Lord Laming's report and recommendations on child protection in March (see previous post for details), the government has responded by publishing an action plan containing details of changes in policy and legislation which will now be implemented. Among the eye-catching points are a promise of extra funding to recruit and retain social workers, the opportunity for members of the public to sit on child protection boards, and the establishment of a National Safeguarding Delivery Unit.

The Protection of Children in England: Action Plan is online now; further documents relating to the Laming Review and the government's response are available by clicking here.
