Today the Southend, Essex and Thurrock Safeguarding Children Boards launch the brand new SET Bruising Protocol.
This is being rolled out across the county and we advise that you check it is implemented in your area.
The aim of this Protocol is to provide frontline professionals with a knowledge base and strategy for the assessment, management and referral of children who present with bruising and/or suspicious marks.
We encourage all individuals and organisations that work with children and young people to familiarise themselves with the protocol which can be found on the Policies and Guidance page of the ESCB website.
