The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has launched a consultation on draft guidance aimed at helping people who work with children to spot and stop abuse and neglect. The guidelines include physical, mental and sexual abuse as well as newly recognised forms of abuse such as Female Genital Mutilation, sexual exploitation, child trafficking and forced marriage, and outlines both ‘soft’ and ‘harder’ signs. The expected publication date for the guidance is September 2017.
Closing date: 19 April 2017
