The article reviews the book 'Good Practice in Safeguarding Children: Working Effectively in Child Protection' edited by Liz Hughes and Hilary Owen. Policy and legislation in relation to the protection of children and young people have undergone rapid change in recent years. Under the Children Act 2004, agencies providing services to children as well as adults have statutory reponsibilities to ensure that they safeguard children and promote their welfare. These new policy developments have had a significant impact on practice. This book review looks at whether this book succeeds in its aim of bringing practitioners in child and adult services up to date with the practice implications of these new developments.
