What is the child protection protocol
When a case of potential abuse, neglect or harm may be a criminal offence, we must work together with Police to investigate. The child protection protocol (CPP) is the process that we follow.
When to follow it
Cases that must follow the child protection protocol include:
- physical abuse that meets the CPP definition
- sexual abuse
- neglect that meets the CPP definition.
How to follow it
