Children are Anguilla’s future and most precious resource. We are therefore obligated to take the actions contained within this Child Safeguarding National Action Plan (C-SNAP) to ensure all children living in Anguilla have the best possible outcomes in life. This C-SNAP sets out the future direction of safeguarding our children and, in so doing, will help us to meet the responsibilities detailed in Anguilla’s ‘Interagency Child Protection Protocol (ICPP)’, which ensures all agencies engaged in the protection of children are guided by best practice in identifying, intervening, and managing cases of child abuse. The actions specified here also guide Anguilla’s commitment to guaranteeing that children grow up in an environment that provides safe and effective care, which prevents impairment of their health and development.
Priorities within the C-SNAP are based around the following key objectives that were identified by child safeguarding stakeholders during the C-SNAP consultation phase:
1. Legislative reform
2. A national institutional framework (child safeguarding, juvenile justice)
3. Governance of the ICPP
4. ‘Working Together’ capacity building
5. Raising awareness of child safeguarding
6. Juvenile Justice
7. Child-friendly schools
8. Data management and data sharing
