Child protection information for professionals

I want to be happy not sad

All children have a right to protection from abuse and harm. Regardless of your role, you play an important part in protecting children and young people in Argyll and Bute. 

All staff should:

  1. be aware of their own organisation's child protection policies and procedures
  2. be alert to indicators of concern in children and young people you come into contact with
  3. respond to concerns you have about a child by acting in accordance with procedures

In this section you will find interagency guidance, protocols, and training information as well as other useful information and publications to help you in fulfilling these responsibilities.
