Consultation regarding changes to Working Together

This consultation document seeks views about three proposed changes to the statutory guidance.

Following this consultation, the government proposes to update and replace the current statutory guidance Working Together to Safeguard Children revised and published in 2013.

The three proposed changes being consulted on are:

• the referral of allegations against those who work with children;

• notifiable incidents involving the care of a child; and

• the definition of serious harm for the purposes of serious case reviews.
