Child Neglect - We need your feedback

Tackling child neglect is a key priority for us all in Rochdale. Child neglect is the most common form of abuse in the UK and the effect of neglect on children and young people is devastating. The Multi-Agency Neglect Strategy 2016-18 did not have the impact expected in Rochdale. A number of reasons for this have been suggested. We are interested in finding out the views of all professionals on these suggestions as well as gather any other additional feedback which would assist in the development of the new neglect strategy. To feedback, please complete the short survey available at the following link:

Deadline for responses is 19th November 2018.
