Description

The Interagency Child Protection Protocol aims to offer guidance and support on good practices for the identification, reporting, investigation, case management, and prosecution of child abuse cases. Its primary objective is to help secure and safeguard the general well-being, safety and protection of children in Anguilla.

This Interagency Child Protection Protocol seeks to ensure that all agencies engaged in the protection of children are guided by best practice in identifying, intervening, and managing cases of Child Abuse. While there is a role for all in society to protect children, professionals who interface with children have a special duty to report cases of suspected child abuse. The protocol guides professionals as to their responsibilities in such cases. While the Department of Social Development is the agency with primary responsibility for Child Protection, ensuring that children have the best possible outcomes in cases of abuse requires that all relevant agencies work in concert.
