Published: December, 2018

This powerpoint is an attempt to summarise challenges and opportunities within child safegarding in Primary Care in the context of my learning over the last 32 years since my elective in child psychiatry in 1986.

With colleagues across Hampshire, Somerset and Essex I have also put together this CPD on safeguarding and emotion coaching article which you may find useful.

Savage cuts in Local Authority funding for Early Help teams are creating opportunities for innovation - but I am worried about the increased dependence on volunteers however well supervised.  

As always I am hoping you will feedback - we have a live discussion forum at
