Child Protection for the Third Sector

Child Protection is everyone’s responsibility and as a sector we should develop confidence in knowing what to do and who to contact if you have a concern. Here is some key information about Child Protection in Highland, including training.

Highland Child Protection Committee is here to help you find out what to do and who to contact if you are concerned about a child and information on what might happen next. 

The Committee is a multi-agency partnership responsible for:


  • Raising public awareness of child protection issues

  • Co-ordinating prevention activities with children and their families

  • Providing child protection guidance and training

  • Implementing national child protection initiatives

  • Assuring the quality of responses to child protection issues

Third Sector Keeping Children Safe Reference Group
