There are arrangements for providing quality care for either looked after children and young people. Arrangements can be provided due to certain circumstances that may affect the care that will be provided to the child thats being taken care of. Foster care foster care offers to give a temporary home to a child or young person in need of care due to different reasons for example neglect by the parent. Foster care is also like a temporary custody or guardianship for children whose parents are dead or unable to look after them. Respite care there are some foster carers that offer short break or respite care, usually to families of disabled children or those who are sick and have complex care needs that the parent struggles to provide. The foster carers that provide respite care are experienced and some can be professionals or even practitioners in health or care Residential care some children can be given a residential care some simply because there insufficient suitable foster parents available or because they are difficult to care for, for example a childs behaviour may be disturbed or unpredictable as a result of their experience which can be emotional abuse by their parents. Adoption adoption can be another option as it is a way of providing new families for children who cannot be brought up by their birth parents or within their birth family. It is easier to place babies for adoption rather than older children as it can affect the young child emotionally and in some cases siblings can get separated during adoption because the family can only take care of one child. Adoption is a lifelong commitment to the child or children who become a full member of the adoptive family. The Children Act 1989 the Children Act 1989 gives duties to local authorities , courts, parents and other agencies in the United Kingdom, to ensure children are safeguarded and their welfare is promoted. Its aims to make sure all children are receiving the satisfactory level of health and development by their legal guardians/parents. The Children Act 1989 remains the key legislation for safeguarding and protecting children and young people and was strengthened by the Children Act 2004. The Children Act 1989 currently provides the legislative framework for the child protection in England. The key principles that have been agreed to are The paramount nature of the childs welfare. The expectations and requirements around duties of care to children. UN Convention of Rights of Children the United Nations Conventions on the Rights of the Child is a humans rights agreement which sets out the civil, political, economic, social, health and cultural rights of children. There are four core principles of the UN Convention of Rights of Children which are non-discrimination, commitment to the best interests of the child, the right to live, survival and development and respect for the views of the child. The UN Convention of Rights of Children is the framework for protecting and safeguarding and protecting children and young people but includes agreements. Here are a few substantive rights which the convention gives children and young people The right to special protection measures and assistance. The right to access to services such as education and health care. The right to develop their personalities, abilities and talents to the fullest potential. The right to grow up in an environment of happiness, love and understanding. The right to be informed about and participate in achieving their rights in an accessible and active manner. Government (statutory care), local authority The government provides statutory care for children in need for example the local authority must protect and promote the welfare of children in need in its area. To do this it must work with the family to provide support services that will enable children to be brought up within their own families. Children that will benefit from the local authority are children who need local authority services to achieve or maintain a reasonable standard of health and development, to prevent significant or further harm to health and development or who are disabled. The local authority services provide a number of services such as day care facilities for children under 5 and not yet at school, after-school and holiday care or activities for school age children, advice, guidance, counselling, occupational, social, cultural or recreational activities etc. Voluntary sector providers, Barnardos Barnardo is a charity who works directly with 248,000 children, young people and parents and carers every year.

Policies of the Child Protection Act 1998/2004 abuse can occur within many situations including the home, school and the sporting environment. Some individuals will actively seek employment or voluntary with children in order to harm them. Everyone working in either a paid off voluntary capacity, together with those working in organisations, has a role to play in safeguarding the welfare of children and preventing their abuse. These multi-agency procedures have been designed to assist agencies to work together to safeguard children. These procedures should be read in conjunction with NYSCB Referral and Assessment Procedure NYSCB Practice Guidance Integrated working aimed to identify children with additional needs of care, protection or any support earlier early intervention. The Common Assessment Framework is an early help inter-agency assessment. It offers a basis for early identification of childrens additional needs, the sharing of this information between organisations and the coordination of service provision.

The Assessment Framework social workers often use the Framework for the assessment of children in need and their families when social services have concerns about a child or young person. The Framework is to be used for the assessment of all Children in Need, including those in Need of protection. The assessment process determines whether a referral should be responded to only as a Child in Need of support or additionally as a Child in Need of Protection. Throughout the assessment process, the safety of the child remains paramount at all times in all circumstances. The Assessment Framework involves gathering and analysing information in three domains Childrens developmental needs. Parents or caregivers capacity to respond appropriately.
