In addition, the Department for Education issued revised statutory guidance on ‘Working Together to Safeguard Children’ in 2013, which reinforced the need for professionals to make referrals whenever it is considered that a child may be in need (as defined in the Children Act 1989), or where the child has suffered significant harm or is likely to do so.[1] The safety of children at risk must always be the paramount concern for LAs</p><p> </p><p>[1] <a href="http://www.gov.uk/government/publications/working-together-to-safeguard-children" target="_blank">www.gov.uk/government/publications/working-together-to-safeguard-children</a></p>
