Explain child protection within the wider concept of safeguarding children and young people. Accordingto the web site of the NSPCC all kinds of organisations that are working andcome into contact must have safeguarding policies/ procedures to ensure that every child, regardless of their age, gender, religionor ethnicity, can be protected from harm.”Child Protection” is precisely the term ofprotection of children and young people from suspected abuse and neglect. Butin the context of safeguarding, child protection has a wider range of concept.It includes everything an organization can do to keep children and young peoplesafe, including minimizing the risk of harm and accidents and taking action totackle safety concerns.
Working together is one of the primary requirements of ensuringa “wider concept of safeguardingchildren and young people” along with the family. If there is a concern about achild, all agencies should work together in full partnership, take suitableactions, which will address all concern.In England and Wales, LocalSafeguarding Children’s Boards (LSCBs) ensure that the key agencies involved insafeguarding children work effectively together in safeguarding and promotingthe welfare of children at the local level.Under this concept of wider safeguarding we always need totake into account that children and young people are protected frommaltreatment, not only through protection but also when preventing impairment intheir health, development through all possible ensuring and providing positivecircumstances. Childprotection within the wider concept of safeguarding requires many elementsincluding risk assessments, providing safe and secure atmosphere anywhere inthe setting (inside/outside), following safeguarding/health and safety policiesand procedures, fire drills, missing children as well as including all subjectof matter that can protect and prevent children and young people fromnegligence and mental, physical and sexual abuse.
Widerviews of safeguarding for children and young people demand jointresponsibilities: all sides of responsibilities for instance parental andteachers or other agencies – those are involved with them. Children and youngpeople spend most of their day time in school, college, universities or otherorganisations and in that time responsibilities fall on teachers and all otherstaff who are involved with them and their responsibility is to ensure and preventchildren and young people from any kind of harm from physical, mental and sexualabuse, in the same way parental responsibilities are to protect children andyoung people from harm of mental and physical and sexual abuse when they are athome. One very recent research from theBBC indicates that young children are involved with online gambling. Gamblingis not illegal but there should be a restriction of age because of moraleducation as well as E-safety. As we allknow that the Internet is a vast area, children and young people are targetedfrom cyber attackers and very often they are being victimised. One other issueparents/ carer should not ignore are that sometimes they are over exposed inthe point of securing safeguarding and often they do not allow many thingsregarding well being of children and young people as over exposition causedemoralisation, frustration and aggression or extremism, which could obstacles,the wider concept of safeguarding. From my point of view,parents are life long teachers and they can play a vital roll to protect and preventchildren and young people from any kind of harm within the wider concept ofsafeguarding. Parents orcarer who fail to protect or take care of children and young people could facehuge consequences like being taken to court or having a child removed from thefamily and placed into care.
