Child safeguarding for all faiths

After cases like that of Victoria Climbie and Baby P, local authorities have had to make huge changes in the way they protect children from harm that can include everything from neglect to abuse to radicalisation and FGM. Through the Westminster Faith Exchange, Cllr Bush brought together triborough officers, charity workers and faith leaders to share best practice . There were some impressive speakers.

As is demonstrated by today’s comments from a judge¬†about the cultural element in disciplining children, there has to be a clear message that many practices which may be normal in countries of origin are not ¬†accepted, and often illegal, when living in the UK.DSC_0522 (2)
