Research output: Book/ReportOther report

Abstract / Description of output

Despite increased awareness of its impact on development, recognition of neglect is inconsistent and referrals to services are often triggered by other events or concerns about vulnerable children. This is a summary of a systematic review of the literature that examined the evidence on the extent to which practitioners are equipped to recognise and respond to the indications that a child’s needs are likely to be, or are being neglected, whatever the cause. The primary aim was to contribute to the evidence base that equips practitioners and organisations with the information they need to consider themselves to be part of a protective network around children, and to be able and willing to recognise that a child’s needs are not being met, or are in danger of being unmet.
