Neglect Strategy

Neglect is one of the most common forms of abuse. It can take a wide range of forms, tends to be cumulative and can have a significant impact on the physical, emotional, educational and social wellbeing of children and young people.

The purpose of this document is to ensure that we have a structured process for all professionals, that sets out to identify neglect, outline the cumulative impact that neglect has, and aims to set out how we will seek to prevent, identify, and address the underlying and negative impacts that neglect can have. In summary, the Neglect strategy aims to enable and facilitate a structured approach to preventing, identifying, tackling, and reducing the impact of neglect within the Bailiwick of Guernsey
