of being a 'LAC' Legislation and
legal frameworks United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child 1989
In 1989, governments worldwide promised all children the same rights by adopting the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC).
These rights are based on what a child needs to survive, grow, participate and fulfil their potential. They apply equally to every child, regardless of who they are, or where they are from.
Human rights are founded on respect for the dignity and worth of each individual, regardless of race, gender, language, religion, opinions, wealth or ability and therefore apply to every human being everywhere.
The Convention recognises the human rights of children, defined as any person under the age of 18.
All UN member states except for the United States and Somalia have now formally approved the Convention. The UK signed it on 19 April 1990 and ratified it on 16 December 1991. It came into force in the UK on 15 January 1992. Every child matters: Change for Children 2003
This legislation was created as a result of the death Victoria Climbié.
Her death exposed shameful failings in the ability to protect the most vulnerable children.
On twelve occasions, over ten months, chances to save Victoria’s life were not taken. Social services, the police and the NHS failed.
"Every Child Matters" provides a support framework for families.
They created Sure Start Children’s Centres in each of the 20 percent most deprived neighbourhoods. These combine nursery education, family support, employment advice, childcare and health services on one site
Promoted full service extended schools which are open beyond school hours to provide breakfast clubs and after-school clubs and childcare,
By March 2004, no homeless family with children should be placed in bed and breakfast accommodation, unless in a short term emergency.
We will also create a new range of community sentences and make greater use of a wider range of residential placements such as intensive fostering for young offenders, including for 10 and 11 year old persistent offenders. Children Act 1989 , 2004
The Children Act 1989 was initially designed to ensure that all local authorities were making equal provision to all children and families.
The Children Act of 2004, goes hand in hand with 'Every Child Matters, which considers all aspects of services.
The Children Act ensures that the local authority support those families whose children are in need.
Protects children who may be suffering or are likely to suffer significant harm.
To achieve a better balance between protecting children and enabling parents to challenge state intervention.
To encourage greater partnership between statutory authorities and parents. Common Assessment Framework (England)
Essential to providing integrated services that put the need of the child or young person as the focus.
Looks at services involved with the family and how they, together with the parents, can meet the needs of the child, whilst taking into account any specialist needs and how they can be met.
Aims to identify the needs at a young age, and other factors at an early stage, so the best support can be provided as soon as possible. Human Rights Act 1998
Enables children, young people and adults to seek protection of their rights both nationally and internationally through the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg. Data Protection Act 1998
Prevents personal information from being misused but so that the data can be used for legitimate reasons.
It allows professionals to disclose some information if it poses a risk to an individual or that professional. Framework for the Assessment of Children in Need and their Families 2000
