Safeguarding Disabled Children

Disabled children have exactly the same human rights to be safe from abuse and neglect, protected from harm and achieve as non-disabled children.

Disabled children can experience greater vulnerability as a result of negative attitudes and unequal access to services and resources.  They may also have additional needs relating to physical, sensory, cognitive and/ or communication impairments.

In-Trac training programmes of continuing professional development provide practitioners with the effective skills and knowledge they need to safeguard and promote the welfare of disabled children.
