A framework to set out a common set of skills and standards for workers to ensure the delivery of a consistently high standard of support to our most vulnerable children and young people across the country has been published.

The framework is intended to improve advice and tools available for assessing, managing and minimising risks.

The main aim is to strengthen the skills and training of professionals and improve the advice and tools available to them in assessing, managing and minimising risks faced by some of our most vulnerable children and young people.
