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. It is a complex issue and there is no single cause of neglect and no single solution. Rochdale Borough Safeguarding Children’s Board have now published Rochdale’s new multi-agency neglect strategy 2018-2020. The revised strategy has been informed by feedback from practitioners across different agencies, as well as lessons learned nationally as well as locally, by statutory guidance and research. Our new strategy focuses more on outcomes and a new set of priorities have been developed -Rochdale CAREs about neglect: Communication and Co-operation; Analysis; Relationships; and Engagement.
