Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone's responsibility.  Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families and carers has a role to play in safeguarding children.  In order to fulfil this responsibility effectively, all professionals should make sure their approach is child-centred.  This means that we will consider, at all times, what is in the best interests of the child.
