* Describe the roles of different agencies involved in safe guarding children and young people- * Hospitals- Their job is to examine a child or young person if they are referred to them or just come in for a routine check. They should be able to tell if the child is ok or if they think any sort of abuse is going on. * Play workers- Play workers work with children everyday all day. A play worker can detect if they child isn’t themselves or is very quiet or doesn’t like certain looking people (always keep records on what you see, but it has to be what they child said and not want you say. ) * Social services- This are professionals and they are trained to know what is anything is going on with a child eg; neglect, abuse etc. * Schools Nurseries play a very important part and the adults who are their teachers play a very big part in their lives as they are with them 5 days out of seven so they will be able to note down any change in the child’s play or development. * Police officers- Police are normally called for police matters ie: fighting, robbery etc. Sometimes they are called to houses where their will be alcoholic /drug addicts. So they will be able to tell by the family home if this or these children’s needs are being met. * Foster careers- Foster careers are very important as they would or will be taking a child for any sort of reason and as they spend allot of time with the child they might notice a type of thing they say or how they play to figure out what has happened to this child. * Nspcc- This is here to protect children and they have a helpline for children and young people to ring so they can talk about what is happening and if they what help they can get it. As most of the time children and young people still love the abuser they just want the abuse to stop. * Brook These people are here for young people who need some advice or support on sex education but sometimes young people will come to this places to talk about abuse and get help. * Doctors , nurse Health Professional’s- These professional’s can make sure there are no physical signs of neglect of any sign of abuse.
