Abstract

RCPCH is asking the government to consider five key points before considering whether a mandatory reporting duty is best for children in England and Wales:

1. All types of child abuse much fall under any mandatory reporting duty
2. A children’s rights-based approach must be followed and a children’s rights impact assessment must be carried out
3. A Government systems impact assessment must be carried out
4. Measurable outcomes for children must be built into any plans
5. Clearer definitions must be provided before further consultation
